svaddba.sk that's portrait and documentary photographs from your wedding day, in printed and digital form, of course.
To deliver you this, I need some gear. I will not name the expensive camera gear, which help me to make great photos to stun you… Don’t take it bad, but even my skilled eye of photographer will not see which brand of camera was used for which photo. For me the most importat thing in photography isn’t something you can simply achieve with lens of aperture F1.2, e.g. The most important is emotion, moment, composition… all that, which can deliver only persona of photographer.
Project svaddba.sk that’s portrait and documentary photography of your wedding day in one whole package. I don’t offer smaller or bigger package - you are important as humans to me, no only as an object for making quick snapshots in one hour. Please see it as project which we do together and we should take some time for us to be clear what/why/where we are going to do/photograph.
My standard approach is photographing from morning moments of preparation bride and groom till midnight dance. For photographing portraits I always prefer another day as wedding celebration day, if possible. I think it need some more time and no to hurry to get the pictures we are looking for, and of course there is a weather, which sometimes used to cross our plans. ;)
Please, give me at least three weeks after shooting to deliver you the result. It take some time to go throug all photos, make selection, postprocess and print it. I do all this by myself, because it is important for me to have it all under my control. Even the box you will get your photos in, is handmade by myself. Yes, details are very importatn for me, because they form the whole in the end! :)
After this three weeks you will get:
- around 300 of documentary photographs, 30-50 of portraits photographs in digital version on CD (fullsize + resized for web, mail, etc.)
- selection of ca. 35 photographs size A5, printed by myself on archival matte photography paper (inkjet print)
- one portrait photography size A3, framed, printed by myself on cotton matte archival photography paper (colour accuracy for 100 years)
OK, and why don’t you get 1000 photos but only 300? Because I don’t want to bore you during the viewing this photos. I would like to enjoy you this viewing till the end. Believe me, we can get all this beautiful moments into this 300 pictures. For the same reason you will not get leather photo album, but pictures in box, which are easier to view in group, and you can frame them and put them on your wall later. And of course, you will get the best piece framed, just ready to put it on your wall.
And if you are wondering what is this cover photo of this website, and if you could have the same photo of yourself, the answer is yes! This photograph was taken with the unique camera obscura (pinhole camera) technique on black and white 4x5" large format film, which I develop and scan by myself again. The same technique was used in portrait series of musicians in local club in my hometown, which was awarded in Slovak Press Photo 2017. in portrait/series category. I used the same technique in 2018 during the largest music festival in Slovakia - Pohoda 2018 - where I took portraits of musicians performing there, such as Sixto Rodriguez, Fink, Jamie Cullum, Daniel from Gus Gus, among many others. As I expose 6 plan films during the portrait session, this is the unique chance for you to have the same portraits which talk for itself.

Looking forward for our common project!
