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!

Moving Back to Manhattan + A Love Letter to Pinterest

Alex and I are officially moving back to Manhattan this week and though our place will be smaller than our current Queens apartment,  it doesn’t feel like a downgrade at all!  For one thing, I will be less than a block from Central Park – my life long dream – and I will be living in a legit pre-war brownstone complete with a brick wall which makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside!  Yesterday we had my women’s small group meeting in order to pray for and dedicate the place since we’ll be meeting there a lot in the future, and I saw even in that short time in the apartment together an amazing shift.  It is clear to me that it is going to be such a blessing for our group to have a stable place to meet every week that is also a safe environment where you can be yourself and share your personal life without strangers looking on or eavesdropping.  Further confirmation that moving back and making the sacrifice of space and cash is the right thing for us at this time!

But the fact remains that we are downsizing and have to get rid of A LOT OF STUFF.   As sad as it is giving up my tiffany blue Marie Antoinette fainting couch (that I’ve never fainted on I’m happy to say)  I am so excited to redecorate and do something new in our space and to design it and pick pieces that will make it feel open, airy, welcoming and bigger than it really is!

When I need inspiration for home decorating, the obvious place to turn is Pinterest, full of helpful pictures that I can pick out and put on my board, way easier than flipping through and clipping from magazines!  God bless the inventor of Pinterest and all the people who scour the internet for these great inspiration images.  This is part of one of my favorite boards wishfully called “My Future Home”

 

Pinterest is also great in that, almost like taking a vacation or a walk through the park, you can kind of vacate life and relax in a fantasy world.  That’s what I do on my Fairy Tale Garden board…

 

But really Pinterest gives you endless possibilities of what you can “pin” and collect onto different theme boards.   I collect healthy recipes, workouts, paint swatches, and craft projects, as well as photo inspiration for my business.   It’s also amazing for brides looking to gather inspiration for their big day!  I definitely hope all of you will follow me on Pinterest, and I promise to follow you back!

 

Frost Photography Flush Mount Albums Part II

Beautiful albums are something I’m passionate about giving my clients.  When I got married, I didn’t get a wedding photography package with an album, thinking I’d make my own later.  2 1/2 years later all I have is a disc of photos and no album.   So even my most basic wedding package includes a complimentary 20 page album credit to get my brides and grooms started- my gift to you!   I want to help ensure that no one misses the memo (like I did) of how awesome it is to have someone else make you an album!

Your album is something you will treasure forever, so it better be well-designed, timeless and built to last like these beautiful leather flush-mount albums.

Each album arrives to you in a beautiful black leather storage case for safe-keeping of your treasured heirloom.

The books lay flat with such a tiny gutter that you can hardly see it.  The gutter and thick pages means that your lay-flat pages won’t crease over time.

Lay flat flush mount albums mean you can feature larger pictures across the spread
Clean layouts give each of your beautiful photos the showcasing and respect they deserve.
If you want to see this and my other sample album in person make sure to set up an appointment with me to chat about your wedding!!

Sailing in Santa Barbara | A Yacht Wedding Shoot

Well guys, the last few days  I have been here in Jamaica where the sun is so hot that sunscreen doesn’t seem to work.  Burnt to a crisp, I am hiding from the sun in the computer room for a little while.  So I thought I’d share with you some images from another sunny place I visited recently,  Santa Barbara!  Yes, there are still more images I have withheld from you!

I had the amazing opportunity while in Santa Barbara to be a part of a yacht wedding shoot.   A bunch of us photographers got ourselves onto one boat, and our models were on another.  While sipping champagne, we got to take in the sunset and do what we love best,  capture real people in love.  Yup, these models were real couples who were both very adorable and very love!

Tyler + Bailee | West Village Engagement | New York Engagement Photographer

A love story to rival Romeo and Juliet’s but with a much  happier ending, Tyler and Bailee fell in love their first year of college.   It was love at first sight for Tyler who started planning his elaborate proposal shortly after meeting the beautiful Bailee.   Not long after, Tyler led Bailee  on a rabbit trail of clues all the way to Colorado where he proposed.  These fresh-faced sweethearts are moving to the Big Apple this the summer before they kick off their lives together.   This West Village engagement session is sweeter than cherry pie, so grab a spoon and a cup of coffee this morning and enjoy a peek into their love story.

Did my heart love till now? forswear it, sight!
For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night.

 William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet

Finally got to try out my new 35mm 1.4 on this session, and I’m loving it!    The next three were all with the 35…

Pure magic.  Bailee you are just gorgeous!

Are these guys not models???
