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!

I think some sort of maternal instinct must be developing in me as I get older because I’m all of a sudden wanting to do more family photo sessions.  My cherry blossom mini-sessions were a great reminder of how fun they can be, and a great experiment to see that they are totally possible to shoot in film!  Here are a few of my favorite family, maternity photos and head shots that I did in Central Park during the annual NYC spring cherry blossom bloom.  These were all taken in either medium format or 35mm film.

It’s my absolute favorite when other photographers like Joyce reach out to me for a photo session.  Not only is it such an honor, but it’s also so much fun to collaborate with other artists to create their dream shoot.  Tory and Joyce’s wanted an anniversary session celebrated several milestones.  Besides their anniversary, these L.A. natives wanted to capture their new life NYC and the addition of a new family member:  Penny the French Bulldog who, despite her perpetually grumpy face, was actually quite a happy little pup!

Just wanted to share some 35mm Fuji 400H and CineStill film from Alex and my recent trip to Taiwan.  These images are mostly from Taipei and Sun Moon Lake.  The beauty of misty Sun Moon Lake was probably my favorite and compose most of my photos here, but I absolutely adored our experiences visiting the Shilin Night Market and the lantern festival as well.

Ah, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden: where my heart lives in the springtime.  It has been my dream for years to photograph a Brooklyn Botanic Garden Palm House wedding in the spring,  need I explain why?  As you can see, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden in the spring is bursting with every variety of tulip, daffodils, cherry blossoms, magnolias and every other kind of flowering tree you can imagine.   It’s no secret how much I love flowers, but it is a little known fact that I considered becoming a florist for a short period of time, before I quickly realized the amount of contact I’d probably have to have with bugs.   Oh, and one other tiny, insignificant detail: I’m horrible even arranging a simple bouquet in a vase!   But that is all well and good because Sprout did an amazing job with the flowers, and I had the joy of photographing them, something I am infinitely better at than arranging them!

But photographing a dream wedding at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden would have been nothing without the perfect couple to capture, and Amanda and Patrick were a dream to work with.  Though some sad and unexpected events overthrew some of their plans for the day,  their positivity and resilience was nothing short of inspiring.   Rapturously in love, as you can see from their tearful first look,  their captivated expressions towards each other all day made capturing romantic images easy.  I’ve never seen a first look lessen the emotion of the ceremony.  In fact, a groom who tears up when seeing her for the first time almost always does so again or more so at the ceremony, and Patrick who got misty-eyed at both was no exception.  Though their ceremony was originally planned to be under the Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s famous grove of cherry blossoms,  after a long winter, they were not yet in bloom.  However, I think it was a blessing in disguise because they instead got married under the grove of sweet-smelling Magnolias, which had burst into full bloom just a few days before.  Besides the beautiful trees framing the ceremony,  the intoxicating smell of the Magnolia blossoms lit by the setting sun created such a spectacular atmosphere for their guests.     Their first dance was like something out of Dancing with the Stars, a fun and complex swing number to Hall & Oats, “You Make My Dreams Come True,” and they NAILED IT!

Tara at Exquisite Affairs Productions was an incredible organizer and manager of the day despite its unexpected twists and turns.  Sally from Styles on B did an amazing job with the girls’ hair and Nicole Sievers did an awesome job with make up, and both finished so early!  Finally I want to say thanks to my team.  These pictures would not have been possible without my second shooter extraordinaire Mekina, a talented photographer who is always an upbeat and willing to help, and Amanda Pham my assistant and intern who is the master of film-rolling, social media and detail photos.

Amanda and Patrick:  I feel so blessed that you guys chose me to capture your wedding day.  It was such a pleasure.  I wish you guys a blessed, long, happy, healthy and prosperous marriage!

The setting is adorable. Brooklyn Botanic garden is an awesome spot for NYC wedding photos, especially during spring.
