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!

Marc and Kelly | Central Park New York Engagement Photographer

What I love about photographs is that even when everything is chaotic and going wrong, if you can just capture one second of romance, a moment of love, a twinkle of bliss, all of the other stuff is discarded and forgotten.   Even though poor Marc and Kelly had almost everything go wrong  for their engagement session (a rain reschedule,  Kelly’s hairstylist showing up almost two hours  late, to being kicked out of the conservatory garden in Central Park by the gardeners who decided to close it early)  you would never know from these images that this day was anything but perfect.  May that be a foreshadowing of how this soon-to-be-wedded couple’s relationship will be:  an oasis in the desert, a shelter in the storm, a haven  of bliss amidst a world in chaos.  Congrats again on your engagement Marc and Kelly!

Avalanche on the Horizon

This may sound a tad dramatic, but I feel like I just threw the stone that will start an avalanche for my business.  And that’s saying a lot considering I already feel like I’ve been riding a Tsunami!

I signed up for a Jose Villa workshop.

Rewind.  Let me explain.  Jose Villa is my favorite wedding photographer in the world and a huge inspiration to me and many other photographers I know as well.  A fine-art, film photographer, Jose creates fresh, natural, romantic images that are like delicious, sugar-coated  bits of perfection.   He has a similar vision for wedding portraits that look like art but feel natural, candid and romantic.  Since reading his book, “Fine Art Wedding Photography,” I’ve been seriously considering taking the plunge into film photography and making that a big part of my business. It is not just his images that I like, but he also fits my definition of success.  He shoots 40 or so weddings a year, takes in $12K+ on each one, hosts several workshops a year and though he’s been doing this for several years he still enjoys it!!! I have wanted to take one of his workshops for years.   However, they are usually 6-8k plus accommodations and flight.  They take place in Italy.  Or Mexico.  And as much as that sounds like the coolest thing EVER, it was always hard to justify the expense to myself as an investment that would quickly pay itself back.  Okay, stop.

I’m thumbing through Facebook yesterday when I see that Jose Villa is having a condensed two day workshop in Napa for half the normal price….(wait for it)….the SAME WEEK I’m already there to shoot Iona and Mikey’s Sonoma wedding (which I’m soooo excited for).  I almost fell out of my chair as I sprang up to call my husband, who is also a 10% owner in my company and whose advice I highly value for big financial decisions.  He knew how long I’ve been talking about Jose Villa and the chances of me being able to do something like this again with so little cost and inconvenience is slim.  I booked it within 24 hours.  I’m soooo excited.

My excitement for the chance to build my portfolio in Napa where I hope to be doing many more weddings next year is second only to my chance to meet, watch and learn from a long-time-idol of mine.  I know big things are ahead for Frost Photography.  Besides this workshop which I think will definitely bring up new ides for moving forward, some ideas and changes that have been on my mind and are on the horizon: incorporating film into the wedding day, hiring an associate photographer, hiring an office manager, making a video bio for the website and so much more!

Sounds amazingly serendipitous! Hope you keep us posted about these next steps in your journey! Also, please let me know if I can help in any way – e.g. with your bio video, or whatever! It’d be great to connect again!

Hey Mike! Nice to hear from you again. We met briefly at United two years ago when I attended your mini-workshop/shoot at the Sunstone winery. Your talk at United (I think it was the next day) was the highlight. Thanks for the encouraging words. It went great- and I’ve since really started to settle in a place of my business that makes me happy with the right amount of weddings, right kind of clients, and I’m now shooting much more film which makes me really happy! I hope all is well with you!

New York Botanical Garden Wedding | New York Wedding Photographer

If someone made me, forced me, coerced me into divulging my favorite type of wedding, I’d have to admit,  it would be in a New York Botanical Garden wedding.  Don’t get me wrong, I loved getting married in Lake Tahoe, but there is something just so romantic, intimate and lovely about roses, overflowing flower beds,  and garden paths and knowing we are hidden somewhere in the midst of New York City.  Elizabeth and Daniel, a couple of nature lovers, chose the Stone Mill at the New York Botanical Garden for their wedding, and this New York wedding photographer couldn’t have been a happier camper!  From the little succulents they gave their guests as favors, to the beautiful textured bouquets and centerpieces, this wedding was truly breathtaking.  Their ceremony had the backdrop of a rushing creek and towering deciduous trees which added to the majesty and wonder of the sacred vows they made.  I hope you enjoy a taste of their special day.

Abigail Kirsch has some of the most beautiful venues, and are some of the most professional caterers/event managers I’ve ever worked with!  I’ve had a secret love affair with them ever since my event planning days!  The New York Botanical Garden is one of their extra special exclusive venues in New York.

Don’t let their doctorate degrees fool you, Elizabeth and Daniel and all their physicist friends know how to party!  From the minute they entered the ballroom the party did not stop, and everyone (myself included) had a fabulous night!
