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!

This lovely wedding shoot was inspired by the gorgeous jewelry of Kira Kira, designed by the talented Suz Somersall and her awesome business partner Whitney who together pulled this lovely shoot off.  We had so much fun gallivanting around the Hamptons all day.   Our plans were tea and croquet, and then the beach.  However, we were stopped half way through our drive by this gorgeous cherry blossom orchard, still blooming away long after most of the blossoms in NYC had fallen.   I’ve been dying to do a bridal cherry blossom shoot, but its so hard to plan around those little finicky blossoms that always bloom and fall whenever they please and never on schedule!  It felt like a divine gift.  I’m sure it felt like a divine gift to Suz too who has a beautiful line of cherry blossom jewelry, and those gorgeous pink drop earrings couldn’t have asked for a better backdrop!   The models were a delight to work with as well.  Jessica Benson is actually a med student by day and a model by night and Janai is soon to be a bride herself!

Hey Brandon! I actually shot that with a 50 1.2 mm just stepping further back to get a wider angle.

Favorite Father of the Bride Photos | New York Wedding Photographer

Despite being a day to celebrate a bride and grooms commitment to each other, weddings are also a very special time for fathers of daughters.   Traditionally in a wedding the father is giving his daughter into the care of her husband to provide for her in his place, and while today that is no longer the case, I think many father’s still their daughter’s wedding day it as a symbol of their little girl being officially grown up and no longer needing them in the same way.

In honor of the Father’s day, the Knot partnered with MSN to come up with a sweet slideshow of Father of the Bride Photos that Will Make You Cry.  They gathered images and quotes from the brides about how they were feeling in that moment, and two of my brides, Jenna and Bianca, had photos and quotes chosen for the slideshow!

In honor of Father’s day, I decided to pull a little post together myself of a few Father of the Bride moments that have stood out in my mind over the last year.  Grab a tissue box and the phone to call your Dad afterwards!  :-)

This first one was one of the chosen images.

The Knot also chose to use this sweet moment of Jenna crying.

All of these are STUNNING Caroline! The 5th one down…makes me teary eyed! LOVE!

New York Wedding Photographer Behind the Scenes | Wedding Season 2013

Once again, I’m slow on the blogging, but not for lack of work to show.  I have so many weddings/shoots that I’m dying to show you that are ready to blog as soon as the client sees them first or blogs publish them!   In the meantime, I thought it’d be fun to show a little bit of what I’ve been up to this year so far in the form of “Behind the Scenes.”  As the one in front of the camera all the time, there are very few pictures of me at work on most shoots, but for the recent weddings where I had second shooters, I can give you a fun glimpse of what goes on behind the scenes on the wedding day.

I never know why I’m so sore after the wedding day until I see pictures like this…Oh no wonder. I was doing squats all day long!

Shooting in central park on a Saturday means we always have an audience.  Even from row boats.  See Jennifer and Jean Noel’s  wedding photos here

Sometimes I’m a photographer, sometimes I’m a bridesmaid.  Always try to keep extra meds, pins, shout wipes, deodorant etc on me because you never know what a bride might need…

When the schedule allows I pull together a same-day slideshow for my couples during their cocktail reception as a surprise.  Seeing their reactions is always my favorite part.  This photo was particularly fun since these are three of my 2013 couples all congregated around Jenna and Mike’s slideshow.   See more from Jenna and Mike’s wedding here

Staging details takes a lot of patience.  Since I have very little for detail photography which requires balancing things and moving things micro inches, I try to channel mine from the Mister Miyagi place within.

I have much more patience for arranging people since they don’t accidentally fall over (usually) in the middle of my shot like a bouquet might.  So I can get it just right….

The result:

Full service photography doesn’t just mean I help you from your wedding photo planning  to buying prints, it also means that when its 100 degree out and you need a break, I will fan you with my reflector.  No extra charge.   Vivi clearly can’t believe how much it helped!
Sometimes I feel like I’m part photographer part monkey.  Here is me climbing up in the rafters of a barn for some detail shots of Matt and Vivi’s wedding.  
How would you caption this photo?  It looks like I’m saying, “If you guys run hand in hand to that distant horizon in this 100 degree heat for me that would be great.”  Vivi’s face is like “Dear God no…”   No I wouldn’t do that to them.  I think this is when we were deciding to take a break from the heat and to come back at sunset.   Matt and Vivi’s blog post will be coming soon!

Have a beautiful week!

xo Caroline
