About Jeff Kolodny

Posted on August 24, 2009

JEFF KOLODNY PHOTOGRAPHY, INC. is currently based in South Florida. We provide Award Winning Wedding & Event Photography both in the South Florida area and all over the world. Some of our remote locations have included: California, Vermont, New York, Washington DC, France, Jamaica, Mexico, and various Caribbean islands.

Jeff’s passion and talent for photography began right before his teen years and continued to develop in high school when he began to shoot stills and video for his high school theater department. He went on to attend ADELPHI UNIVERSITY in NY and majored in Communications & Photography. By his junior year of college, Jeff was a paid, working photographer – re-editing motion picture film and assisting a Director of Photography in the NY area.

After graduating from ADELPHI UNIVERSITY in 1985, Jeff moved to Los Angeles, CA, to gain the most experience possible by working in and around the Hollywood film industry. He started employment at WILLY LEON PHOTOGRAPHY, one of LA’s premier portrait and event wedding photographers. Next, Jeff worked as a freelance photographer for BILL SMITH PHOTOGRAPHY. Simultaneously, Jeff attained a position as a custom photographic printer and photographer for FORENSIC PHOTOGRAPHIC SERVICE. At this time Jeff also became a photographer for the Los Angeles Fire Department. These positions proved to be extremely fascinating and instrumental for his career – he began to capture truly unique images, and as his talent developed, Jeff acquired a steady client base of his own.

The next step of advancement came as a custom printer at CRUSH CREATIVE, ( one of the most prestigious labs in the country. He printed murals and fine art photographs for many Hollywood film and TV studios, including Universal Studios, Paramount, Warner Brothers, Disney, and NBC. In addition, Jeff printed and created photography for Jay Leno’s “The Tonight Show” as well as printed and shot images for NASA and other government agencies. CRUSH CREATIVE afforded Jeff the opportunity to work with the best of the Hollywood entertainment business. The top photographers in the world used CRUSH CREATIVE, and eventually, their work fell into Jeff’s hands. During the three years he worked at CRUSH CREATIVE, Jeff printed images from Andre DeDienes, one of Marilyn Monroe’s first photographers, Herb Ritts, Annie Leibovitz, and many others. He studied what comprised a truly great photograph, and he learned how to shoot for proper color balance, contrast, and skin tones. His education about photographic chemistry grew rapidly as well.

Jeff started his own business, JEFF KOLODNY PHOTOGRAPHY & VIDEO, in 1993, offering both photography and video services. As Jeff’s skills and talents grew so did his client list, which includes The Los Angeles Times, OPI, Dermalogica, Playboy, The Los Angeles Fire Department, Honda Motor Company and many more.

In addition he has been published in many well-known magazines such as Vogue, Elle Cosmopolitan & Playboy. He has also been published in several professional photography books such as The “Best of Professional Digital Photography” (by Amherst Media) as well as the “Wedding Photographers Handbook.”

Currently located in South Florida, JEFF KOLODNY PHOTOGRAPHY, INC. continues to provide exceptional, professional, and unique photographic services. Each event is covered with precision and extraordinary attention to detail, while consistently offering custom-designed options to commemorate that most special occasion. Cutting-edge techniques, such as infrared shooting & X-Processing and split toning are incorporated into Jeff’s art form and he delivers a first-rate product with sensational album design options.

Jeff has won several awards from Wedding Portrait Photographers International, followed by the International Photography Award and the Sibern, Best of Photography Award. He continues to win awards and his images are published in books and magazines on a regular basis. Jeff resides with his wife, Robin, and young son, Joel.

Michele and Gabriel – A Villa Woodbine Miami Wedding

Posted on August 21, 2009

Without a doubt, Villa Woodbine is one of the most intimate and beautiful locations for a Miami wedding. Michele and Gabriel’s wedding was no exception. They were enthusiastic about creating great photos on their wedding day and as you can see, we had plenty of amazing scenery to work with all around Villa Woodbine. Bill Hansen Catering did an awesome job as usual and his staff is always pleasant to work with. If you are planning a Miami Wedding of up to about 100 people, Villa Woodbine is definitely worth a look. Nestled in a woodsy part of Bayshore Drive in Coconut Grove, Villa Woodbine provides a bride and groom with a private and most elegant spot to host a breathtaking Miami wedding. No matter what distinct themes or touches are implemented by a bride and groom, Villa Woodbine weddings are always classy, tasty and events to remember!

Wendy & Eddy’s Washington DC “Destination” Engagement Shoot

Posted on August 17, 2009

Back in July, Wendy and Eddy hired me to photograph their upcoming destination wedding in Palm Beach in June of next year. They live in Washington DC – Eddy works for a bank and Wendy has a really cool government job in which she travels all over Central and South America. We scheduled a “destination” engagement shoot with them in their hometown for the end of July. There are so many incredible places to shoot in our nation’s capital that we had to narrow the choices down. We choose the area near the Lincoln Memorial to begin our shoot. The Washington Monument is in the background straight across the famous reflection pool from the Lincoln Memorial. This area provided us with lots of great backdrops for the shoot and as you will see, Wendy and Eddy were beautiful subjects and we had a great time all around! After the shoot, we all went to dinner at a fabulous Chinese restaurant. Thanks to Wendy and Eddy for all the good tips while we were in your city and thanks for a great shoot! We are very much looking forward to their upcoming South Florida destination wedding!
