We believe that your wedding photos should be extraordinary.

New Image Photography was founded by Jonathan Koslen over thirty years ago in Cleveland, Ohio. After working in Israel as a photojournalist, Jonathan’s focus was primarily fashion photography. One day during a photo shoot, a model asked if he could photograph her wedding. She said she was looking for someone to just “show up and shoot what’s going on.”   Jonathan did just that, and from there went on to create one of Cleveland’s most prominent wedding photography studios.  Over two thousand weddings later, Jonathan treats every wedding with as much enthusiasm and excitement as his first year in business. His style is described as “photojournalistic and event portraiture with a high fashion twist”. New Image is unobtrusive and refined yet also cutting-edge and avant-garde.

~ Marina Koslen has been an artist most of her life, starting in childhood at the centuries-old Grekhov Academy of the Arts in Odessa, Ukraine. She earned her Bachelors of Fine Arts from the prestigious Cleveland Institute of Art, with a focus on painting and illustration, and her MBA from Ursuline College. The photography was a natural progression, as Marina has the eye and soul of a fine artist.  Marina first met Jonathan while hand-painting the 50×40 ft backdrop for Cleveland Ballet’s Nutcracker. Marina’s favorite part about wedding photography is capturing all the emotions and feelings! 

With studios based in Cleveland, Ohio and South Florida, New Image is a boutique destination photography studio that caters to every bride who walks through our doors. Our team of master photographers has a refined understanding of the subtleties and nuances a wedding brings. Each and every event is covered by at least two photographers.  The studio’s focus is always on the couple, however, having two photographers allows for plenty of opportunity to also shoot the parents and their friends. Jonathan understands that a wedding is a big day for everyone and he and his associates work extremely hard to exceed expectations.  As a result of this talent and work ethic, New Image has been preferred vendors for The Ritz Carlton, Renaissance Hotel, Marriott Key Center, Cleveland Museum of Art, Hillbrook Club, Landerhaven, and many others.

Marla and her parents are close family friends and she has been the star of many of the ballet’s I have shot.  Over the years she has showed great interest and talent in photography.  We are thrilled she is now assisting us at weddings and special events!

Ayla (Jonathan’s Daughter) started as a photo assistant as she literally grew up with a camera in her hand. A few years ago a wedding coordinator realized the video person he thought was hired never arrived.  Ayla ended up shooting video for the first time that evening and loved it!

Adela is our newest member on the team. Her passion for photography started very early in her teen years when she started modeling. She enjoyed being in front of the camera and also had a curiosity of what it would be like to be behind the camera…to be the director, the creator, the artist with the magic eye. She approaches each session with attention, creativity, passion and love. She likes to create emotional art that leaves people inspired. In every photograph she finds a reflection of herself and theres no surprise photography is the love of her life!
