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 single piece of advice to wedding photographers whenever they are pursuing a branding project is: hire a professional to do all your design.  They can help you take whatever vision you might have to the next level.

When I approached my friend Sofia Whiddon, an excellent graphic design artist, to design me an information kit for prospective clients,  my goal was a simple folder with a custom designed contract, info-sheet and price list.  I also wanted to include a fun little gift of four postcards, each showcasing a portrait of a wedding or engagement image in every season.  Sofia, who I can always count on to be creative, unique and attentive to detail, took my ideas to the next level.  To each postcard she gave unique little details.  The pattern on the back of each postcard is inspired by different fabrics (to fit the season captured in the picture) and instead of just adding a simple box to indicate where the stamp and logo should go she even created the illusion of the fabric fraying away.  Sofia even managed to make the contract look fun with tabs and unique folding.   I love her new design for my business cards as well- the torn paper is such a subtle representation of the natural, timeless, romantic vibe I want to showcase in my brand.  I’m so grateful for Sofia for making my dreams come to life more beautifully than I could have imagined!

Weddings are ultimately about love, and not just the couple’s love for each other, but also their family and friend’s love for them.  Lauren and David’s wedding was full of love overflowing from every direction.  Not only could they hardly contain their love for each other all day (making every photo gush-worthy), but they were also surrounded the most supportive and loving group of friends and family.  All day, I felt like the luckiest NYC wedding photographer, swept up into the emotion and romance of this gorgeous New York City wedding.  Couples like Lauren and David make my job easy and so much fun.  From their ecstatic first look, to Lauren and her father’s special glance before he walked her down the aisle, to the emotional parent dances, I felt so honored and blessed just to be a witness to every minute of it.   Fluffy snowflakes seemed to shed their blessing on David and Lauren’s wedding day, falling all morning and afternoon and softening images of a city that can sometimes appear hard and unfeeling.

Lauren and David thought of every detail that might make their wedding more fun and unique for their guests, which I fully expected after their creative and fun engagement session.   Before the wedding, out of town guests were greeted with creative gift bags full of all kinds of NYC goodies and useful nick-knacks.  In their lovely getting ready suite at the iconic Carlton Hotel .  After a lovely, tear-inducing, ceremony at the Church of the Incarnation and a magnificent sparkler exit,  Lauren and David had double-decker NYC tour buses waiting outside, ready to take guests to the reception.  The festivities culminated at the reception at Studio 450, an incredible loft space in New York City bedecked with show-stopping flowers by Michael George, where their guests were spoiled with amazing food by Relish,  jalapeno margaritas (in honor of their honeymoon to Mexico),  a cigar bar for an after-dinner smoke and late night pizza delivery for the guests who worked up their appetite dancing.   Lauren and David’s personal touches were on everything throughout the wedding day.  Their cake topper allowed them to include their pug and a little school pride in the wedding, and even the fur coat Lauren wore was her grandmother’s.

And despite their incredible attention to the detail and aesthetic, it was obvious to me that they never lost sight of the sacredness of that day and the reason they were there.  I was so amazed at how they were able to let go and fully enjoy their wedding day and all of the special moments it brought to them.  I’m sure this is largely in thanks to their excellent choice in hiring an amazing day of coordinator: Milestone Events by Kristy.

Lauren and David’s wedding day was so much fun to be a part of, I would photograph it all over again.   In addition to all the above reason, it was also such a joy to photograph a wedding with one of my closest friends: Amy Rizzuto.   Not only is she a fun presence to have around in every situation, but she also did an amazing job of looking creatively at every situation and anticipating special moments.

There were so many special moments and personal touches in this wedding, I don’t know where to begin.  Why don’t I begin with Alex and Christina themselves: Two warm-hearted people whose vision for their wedding was to host an intimate affair with their closest friends and family.   In fact, their friends are so important to them that they moved their wedding up from May to January of this year when they found out that some of Alex’s closest friends’ were to be deployed before their wedding.  The other thing that has to be said about Alex and Christina is that for two extremely kind and affectionate people, they are also tough.  Like, really tough.   They did meet as two officers in the Navy after all, and how grateful I was for their toughness, because they were willing –no– GLAD to take 30 minutes worth of portraits in the snow without their jackets.   It was really impressive and allowed us to get some truly gorgeous images that I would have never thought possible on a wedding day.

The ceremony was so beautiful- the two of them couldn’t help but snuggle throughout it and it was clear that everyone was overcome with joy for the two of them.  The Cork Factory Hotel in historic Lancaster PA was the perfect place for this intimate winter affair.   They further personalized their wedding by naming each table for a book that meant something to them personally.  I just love those kinds of unique touches!  By the end of the night, it was clear to me that these two achieved their vision- their night was full of laughs, hugs, and cozy tête-à-têtes between them and each of their dearest family and friends.  I was so honored to be invited into Christina and Alex’s world for this special day.   Thanks so much to Jainé for your excellent company and for helping me to capture the day!

A Castle Hill Inn Wedding | Newport Wedding Photographer

Amongst the gilded age glamor of Newport, Rhode Island’s many mansions, on a point overlooking the bay stands the gorgeous, Victorian mansion of Castle Hill Inn.  It is every wedding photographer’s dream to shoot there and I had the pleasure of photographing this gorgeous Castle Hill Inn wedding last summer.   In respect of my clients’ wishes to remain private, I am able to show you guys just a few images from their show-stopping wedding.   The stunning florals were done by  the super talented Kim at Green Lion Weddings.  If you have the chance to hire her for your wedding, definitely take it!  She did an amazing job.  Thank you also to Angela for your assistance and company that day!
