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!

New York Bridal Boudoir Photographer

“Flowers spring to blossom where she walks
The careful ways of duty;
Our hard, stiff lines of life with her
Are flowing curves of beauty.”

John G. Whittier

As women we love to pick ourselves apart, body part by part.  When we look at another person we may see a whole person, but when we look at ourselves, we fail to recognize our own beauty because we are staring at specific parts of ourselves that aren’t what we wish they were.  When your husband sees you, he sees a full picture: he sees softness, curves, and sparkling eyes.  He sees the woman he loves.  To him you are adorable, beautiful, and irresistible.  The boudoir shoot isn’t to show him that you are these things he already knows you are, but to show yourself!  (Though he doesn’t mind having these photos either!)  After a boudoir session with me, the same girls who come in to the shoot extremely nervous and worried about this “flaw” or that “flab,” leave feeling beautiful, and confident, and unable to believe that the photos they are seeing are them.  While the husbands are always thrilled with the photos, I think the confidence our boudoir shoots inject into their wives are the greater gift they receive!

Nothing brings me greater joy than to find the beauty in someone that they may not know is there and bringing it out –  it’s what I love about photographing people and boudoir sessions in particular!  To do this takes a lot of knowledge of what light, poses, and compositions enhance each individual woman’s best features, but if you have that knowledge, no Photoshop is required to make every woman look their best!

Boudoir sessions are always fun and laid back, but this session was particularly special as it was with a newlywed friend of mine who wanted to make a book for her husband’s birthday present.  I explained to her my style of boudoir which is soft, romantic, almost-photo-journalistic.   I want most of the images to feel like they could be real moments taken out of your real life.

“Maybe New York’s just too big a town. There’s millions of people in this city. How in all this mess is a guy supposed to find the love of his life?”  -Ted Mosby in How I Met Your Mother

Take it from the fictional character who spent 9 years looking for love: it is hard to meet people in this crazy city.  That is why it is such a beautiful thing when two people do find love here, like Jim and Adrianna.  This sweet couple’s lovely winter wedding was the stuff that New York brides’ dreams are made of.  That is probably because the Bowery Hotel is the picture of vintage New York elegance, not to mention the dream of every New York wedding photographer to shoot in.   The brick walls and gorgeous grille windows together with rounded doors and iron sconces give this gorgeous hotel a unique sort of industrial elegance.   Adrianna and Jim were the picture of elegance at this lovely black tie wedding.  When Adrianna slipped into her dramatic Ines de Santos mermaid wedding gown, the whole room was speechless.   Dripping candelabras and all white flowers by Adore Floral covering the long tables created a warm, cozy, inviting atmosphere for this romantic New York winter wedding.  I felt so honored to have been present to capture every moment of this gorgeous affair.

Kate and Scott are finally tying the knot in Greenwich, CT in just a few weeks!  I’m so excited to be photographing their big day.  This is a little teaser from their engagement session last year.  I just love this film image of them snuggling in front of the NYC waterline while the sun sets over the Hudson river behind them.

Sigh.  Film just has a way of making me fall in love with photography all over again.  Kind of like this sweet couple makes me fall in love with love all over again!  When Sharon and Rohit booked their late March central park engagement session with me last fall, I’m sure she didn’t expect the temperatures to be below freezing and the grass to still be brown- but they were brave little subjects and we were able to get some beautiful images.  Because despite the frigid temperatures, the sun came out that day for the first time in a week and made for some lovely film images.  I’m now shooting all outdoor engagement sessions in 100% film and it’s been so much fun!
