Jovica Mrkela – j-Photography

A few words about me and my photography story

Jovica Mrkela

A portrait is an essence of a person captured in a split second. Each person is unique and so are my portraits. My passion for finding beauty in every shot is a powerful driving force. It shows in carefully arranged shots and capturing spontaneous moments that make life beautiful.

Knowing a person makes a big difference when capturing a portrait. Getting to know you over a cup of coffee or lunch is a great way to kick off portrait ideas and maybe start a new friendship. I look forward to meeting you and capturing that something special in a beautiful portrait or wedding photos.

Gatherings like birthdays or corporate functions are great opportunities to capture all the excitement, joy, fun and occasional sad moments these events have to offer. I would like to be there to capture these moments for you. If there is something special happening in your life and you would like to capture it, don’t hesitate to contact me.

I hold a Diploma in Professional Photography from the Photography Institute.

I am located at Chatswood on Auckland’s North Shore.

Thank You

You keep my photography dream alive!

Thank you soo much Jovica Mrkela for the amazing Photo Shoot and time you took to edit the photos! 

They are breathtaking.

You really have a talent for bringing out the true beauty in people. 

Would HIGHLY recommend to all.


We had a great experience with j-photography as it was all about us and our babies needs. 

Jovica was very patient and insured that we were comfortable throughout the photo shoot. I had ideas to what I wanted and Jovica was very open and happy to include my ideas to the shoot. 

We love our photos and would highly recommend Jovica.


These pictures are magical. Thank you!

Thank you Jovica for giving our family pictures we can treasure forever!


I love the pictures!
They are something I will treasure for many many years to come.
I really appreciate what you have done.
I thought it was lovely that you were non invasive and just ‘let us be’. There was no pressure to try and be something that we are not (professional models obviously). And in doing so, you captured us in our more relaxed state. It’s nice to not have to pose for a photo, but still get a professional image that I would be happy to show anyone – we can be our own harshest critics.


Wow! Absolutely amazing photos, brought us to tears watching the slide show. Just awesome, thank you so much!  We are going to recommend you to everyone we know.

Fantastic service from start to finish. Affordable for anyone to get great photos of their family. Well worth the money. Jovica was very patient with the children and knew all the awesome spots at the Auckland Domain for our photo shoot. See you on a yearly basis.


Thank you so much for capturing the most beautiful photos of our little family, we are just ecstatic with the outcome and would definitely recommend your services to our friends and family. We had lots of fun and would definitely do it again.


Thank you so much for the photos of my family and I, they are absolutely beautiful!
We haven’t had professional family pictures taken in years so this has been a wonderful opportunity to update the ones we have.
My family and I appreciate the time and effort you put in to taking these photos for us and will be hanging them up all around our home as soon as we can get them printed and framed!
You really have a gift Jovica, in working with people to produce amazing photography and so I wish you all the best in your very successful career path I believe you have well ahead of you.


Thank you so much for the wonderful digital photos you have taken at our last Saturday Morning training session at the New Lynn dojo – you have managed to capture many great shots !

We just wanted to thank you so much for the outstanding photos you took for us on our wedding day.  Your photography exceeded our expectations – not only did you capture all that was important to us, but somehow managed to capture the love and emotion there too.  Thank you for your dedication, your effort and professionalism.  It was a day we will never forget and have you to thank for bringing our wedding back to life for us in every image.
