Caroline Frost Photography Blog bio picture
  • Meet Caroline

    A few things you should know about me...I am passionate about creating wedding photos that are natural, romantic and timeless. My approach to portrait time is to create timeless imagery that captures you two and your unique love in an honest, but gorgeously composed way that looks almost candid. Not a model? No problem! I think it's a photographer's job, not yours to help you look and feel comfortable in front of the camera! I work in both medium format film and some digital. Film because of its beautiful, soft, fine art qualities and perfect skin tones, and digital because of it's reliability in low light situations.

    In my spare time I read, write poetry and music, lead a photographer small group and have fun adventures around NYC with my husband and our closest friends. I love living near Central Park where you can find me almost any day of the week reading, writing or photographing. Brunch is my favorite meal of the day and my drink of choice is a French 75.

    But enough about me... I look forward to hearing more about you and your wedding plans!

Seeing my parents’ Facebook pictures in Italy this summer made me long to be back in the land of the canals, cliffs, alps, burrata, Spritzes and pasta.  So when I pulled up my album from last year’s trip to “oo” and “ahh” and sigh over how beautiful that little country is, I realized how many lovely pictures I never shared with anyone.  I still have so many vivid memories from this trip, I barely need the pictures!  Some highlights were sitting in a piazza in Florence sipping the Italian’s favorite cocktail (a spritz) and people watching, me crying when we had to leave Tuscany and begging Alex to let us move there, Alex at the wheel of our little boat, zipping across Lake Como, swimming in the lake just outside Villa Serbelloni (pretending it was our own private villa), and our panoramic view at Hotel Firenze on Lake Como with the windswept white curtains.

So here, one year late, is Part II of our Italy trip with images from Venice, Florence, Tuscany (Sienna and Montepulciano), Cinque Terre (Vernazza) and Lake Como.   (Because where else am I going to show-off all these fun travel photos??)  See my previous post on Film in Italy here.

P.S. Alex is very proud of his contributions to this set of photos – basically all the ones with me in them and the hammock one- so leave him a comment below! :-D

Lovely details, a gorgeous setting, a fun family and most importantly an affectionate couple in-love makes for one happy wedding photographer and this wedding had it all.  Michael and Manuela got married in Spring at the Sleepy Hollow Country Club in Upstate New York surrounded by their closest friends and family.  You know you are talking about two special people when half of their guests are willing to travel from across the globe to be with them on their special day.  This intimate celebration was as personalized as a wedding could be.  Their close friend, a missionary/pastor in India officiated their wedding,  their parents sang and gave speeches, and their bridal party was composed of their siblings, nieces and nephews who delivered heartwarming speeches of love and support.  A continuous theme throughout the night was unconditional love.  The family’s sentiments all summed up to say, “Whatever you do, wherever you go, we will always support you,” which I’m sure were especially felt by Michael and Manuela,  given that they are making a big leap-of-faith move this summer to Michael’s home state of California.

Manuela looked radiant, a classic beauty, in her scalloped, silk trumpet gown with her side-swept hair and natural make up done by the talented and sweet Laura Burns.  Michael simply gushed when he saw her, from their tearful first look to the end of the night he couldn’t keep his eyes off his beautiful wife.   One glance at his face at any point of the day and it was clear he was thinking, “I’m the luckiest guy in the world.”  Michael and Manuela’s friends and family complimented Michael’s steadiness, calm and patience affirming that they knew just how blessed she was to have found him as well.

Like all their friends and family Alex and I feel blessed to have found friends in Michael and Manuela as well.  We were especially touched when they sent an invitation inviting Alex to be a guest at this intimate wedding of their closest friends and family.  I already gushed about how much I love this couple and shared the story of how these clients became friends when I posted their gorgeous magnolia blossom engagement session.  Alex and I  had an blast at this wedding photographing, meeting their friends and family and celebrating the love and the union of this amazing couple and  here is a photo to prove it (I know, it should be illegal to have this much fun for a living):

I think some sort of maternal instinct must be developing in me as I get older because I’m all of a sudden wanting to do more family photo sessions.  My cherry blossom mini-sessions were a great reminder of how fun they can be, and a great experiment to see that they are totally possible to shoot in film!  Here are a few of my favorite family, maternity photos and head shots that I did in Central Park during the annual NYC spring cherry blossom bloom.  These were all taken in either medium format or 35mm film.

It’s my absolute favorite when other photographers like Joyce reach out to me for a photo session.  Not only is it such an honor, but it’s also so much fun to collaborate with other artists to create their dream shoot.  Tory and Joyce’s wanted an anniversary session celebrated several milestones.  Besides their anniversary, these L.A. natives wanted to capture their new life NYC and the addition of a new family member:  Penny the French Bulldog who, despite her perpetually grumpy face, was actually quite a happy little pup!
