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!

I had the privilege of meeting Ed and Jessica in New York City where I photographed Ed proposing to the lovely Jessica under the Brooklyn Bridge.  Little did I know that this brief shoot would lead us doing tons of photographs together all over the country.   It was about two degrees outside that day, and Jessica was wisely wearing a warm puffer.  However she was disappointed by her outfit choice when she found out the proposal had been secretly photographed and that more photos were being taken that afternoon.  I was wearing a J. Crew long wool coat that happened to fit her perfectly, so we traded coats for an hour.  Thus began a beautiful friendship.

Though Ed and Jessica originally planned to get married in France, they ended up changing their plans to having a lovely Napa wedding.  This change of plans coincided perfectly with my move to Northern California and I was thrilled to be able to take on their wedding for 2016 and have it be one of my first weddings as an official Northern California Wedding Photographer.

Though 2015 has thrown this couple many unexpected turns, and their wedding plans have had to be flexible as a result, but I am amazed by their perseverance and thankful heart throughout every up and down.  I cannot wait to photograph their wedding in Napa just a few short weeks and celebrate these two amazing people as they vow to stay united throughout their future together.

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):
