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 believe 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, music and mentor other women. 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!

My Camera and I Are Off to Italy

Hey friends,  family, clients and clients-to-be,

My husband, my Canon, my Contax and I are off on our first big trip in four years to Northern Italy!  I can’t even begin to describe how elated I am to be sharing this adventure with my sweetheart.  One of the things Alex and I bonded over when we first met (besides our Star-Wars-filled childhoods) was our mutual love of traveling: the scenic landscapes, the history, the architecture, observing the customs of other cultures – we love it all.    We’ll be in Milan, Venice, Florence, Montepulciano, Cinque Terre and Bellagio, so if you have any suggestions of where to eat, shop, tour, visit etc. in those areas leave them for me in the comments!  I will have limited access to email, but I’ll be responding to urgent emails and wedding inquiries every few days.   However if it’s not urgent,  expect to hear from me on or around July 9th!

Meanwhile, follow me on Facebook and/or Instagram (@carolinefrostphoto)

Arrivederci!

One of the coolest parts of being a New York wedding photographer is being able to meet people from all over the world.  Josanne and Ronnie are getting married this July in Trinidad and Tobago, but first the necessary trip to Kleinfeld’s in NYC to get Josanne’s perfect wedding dress.   On her return trip for her fitting, they booked an engagement session in Central Park with me.  “We want a Fairytale look,” she wrote me, “can you recommend the best part of Central Park for that?”  Central Park is like a part of me,  not only have I lived within a block of it for 4 of my 8 years in New York City, but even when I wasn’t I was always there photographing, exercising, and soaking up nature – the things I love best.  The perfect spot came to mind for their shoot.  A small, quiet,  forested area in Central Park with wooden bridges, creeks, little waterfalls and the illusion of going back to a simpler time and place – like the backdrop for any fairytale.    I won’t tell you where this special spot is, but if you want to book a session with me there or go exploring and find it for yourself, I highly encourage it.  Central Park has so many beautiful nooks and crannies far from tourist visitors, I’m sure you’ll stumble upon something spectacular, even if it’s not my secret spot… :)

N and T’s New York Palace Hotel wedding was the picture of NYC elegance.  Stunning views of St Patrick’s Cathedral,  gilded staircases and a gorgeous iron-gated courtyard were just the beginning of what this beautiful NYC venue had to dazzle the senses.  Skyscrapers were the backdrop for their portraits and super sweet first look photos, which took place on the rooftop of one of the New York Palace Hotels luxury penthouse apartments.   The gorgeous views we had for N and T’s portraits featured the Empire State Building and Chrysler building as well.  Their ceremony was framed by the most gorgeous dripping crystal archway made to sparkle by the candles that hung along side them.   The reception took place in the New York Palace Hotel ballroom, one of the prettiest ballrooms I’ve ever seen in NYC.  It’s gilded mirrors, enormous oil paintings were perfectly complimented by the gorgeous, orchid and hydrangea arrangements by Floralies.

N and T were two of the kindest, easiest people to work with.  Despite how much of a whirlwind a wedding day can be for the bride and groom, N and T didn’t seem to carry any sense of worry or stress.   Their love and joy was contagious and spread throughout the room catching each of their family and friends in turn.  Spending a lot of time with friends and family was important to N and T, who planned to have all their photos before the ceremony in order to be fully present for their guests from cocktail hour to the last dance.  They were so at home in each other’s arms, seemingly unaware of all the eyes on them.  It was such a privilege to be there to witness every moment of this romantic NYC wedding.

Thank you Mekina for the incredible images you captured second-shooting and Kristy for your invaluable help that day!

Barbara and Adam’s have the kind of love that fairy tales are made of.  What’s so amazing about this engagement shoot is that beyond being incredibly romantic, it captures things this couple actually does together; walks in the park, writing poetry, studying Shakespeare scripts, and journaling on a park bench are all actual pastimes of this creative couple.   Because both Adam and Barbara love nature, poetry, theater, and art, it was only fitting that their summer solstice wedding day have a Midsummer Night’s Dream inspired aesthetic.  When they reached out and asked if I wanted to be a part of their wedding day, it seemed destined to be.   Not only am I a lover of all things Shakespeare,  Midsummer Night’s Dream is a personal favorite of mine – I directed a production of it in High School.  Barbara is a director herself, currently getting her MA at NYU for Drama Therapy, and Adam a studio artist, is working in the design/tech world.  As you can imagine with all our overlapping interests and backgrounds, we just clicked.  I had a blast spending the afternoon with Adam and Barbara, who are both so creative, fun, and easy-going and as excited as I was about the medium format film I was shooting with.  I can’t wait for their wedding this Saturday!

We deliberated on a lot of places to photograph their Midsummer Night’s Dream inspired shoot, but one place in Central Park came to mind as the perfect backdrop.  Yes, these photos were taken in Central Park, smack in the middle of Manhattan.   This is my secret place, the spot I run to when I need to get away from it and pretend I don’t live in a city for an hour or two.  Perhaps it’s because this place is my escape, that I haven’t done any engagement shoots here yet; however, that is soon to change.   In fact,  I’ll be sharing another engagement session I did here very soon!  Barbara and Adam’s two hour engagement shoot went by so quickly as this gorgeous nook afforded us so many lovely backdrops.

If you want to learn my secret place, either book an engagement session with me, or go on an adventure see if you can find it yourself!  Central Park actually has two lovely areas with this kind of aesthetic a long with so many other hidden beautiful nooks to discover.  But if you find it,  keep it to yourself!   Let’s keep these places the peaceful uncrowded havens they are.  :)

This session was captured in all medium format film by New York Film Photographer Caroline Frost.

[…] reflected who they are and their unique love story was important to them, and as I talked about in their engagement session blog post, both of them are nature, poetry and theater lovers.  Their wedding took place on June […]
