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!

Patrick and Christy | New York Engagement Photographer

I really just love this couple…  Fun, down to earth and a real “kick in the pants” (as my Dad would say), they kept us laughing the entire session and they keep each other laughing as well.  It was a beautiful sunny day in downtown New York and at the South Street Seaport and we found beautiful spring flowers, but you probably can’t tell that it was absolutely freezing cold!  Poor Christy was so brave, but was having a hard time keeping warm.  Patrick kept her laughing by cruelly promising her a nice ice cream or ice tea afterwards.   It’s clear that these two who met and started dating while at work (have successfully worked together since) have so much fun that no amount of time is too much time together!

Michelle of Micla Photography came out to help with this shoot, second shooting plus graciously holding coats and quickly returning them between shots.  The four of us had a warming glass of red wine afterwards and caught up on life and all the wedding details.  Can’t wait for their wedding, coming up April 21st!

Isn’t she just breathtaking?

Below you are looking right at Patrick and Christy’s office and to the right out of frame is where they live.  We had to capture them crossing this street as they spend most of their lives here!


A really precious moment

I absolutely love the one of them dancing in by the boat. The sun seems to spotlight them!

These photos are so fun and beautiful lighting, and they make me want to hang out with this couple.

Debra and Lloyd: British Invasion + A Newlywed Photo Session

I had the privilege this week of playing hostess to Debra, an old friend of Alex’s from the U.K., and her new husband Lloyd.   Besides having the honor of showing them around our favorite city in the world, we also enjoyed giving Lloyd his first American experience as this was his first trip to the states at all.   NYC stepped up to the plate and seemed committed to proving all European stereotypes of Americans.  On their first day they met a Southerner who was sure to tell Deb and LLoyd how much they hated France,  Deb was lucky enough to meet an overly friendly American in a restroom who felt the need to share in detail her medical bladder conditions, and they also got to meet (during this very photo shoot in fact) the sort of jerk New Yorker who purposely gets in the way of a photo for over 5 minutes to make his friend laugh (and yes ladies and gentleman, he was pushing 40 years old).  Lloyd was surprised not to see as many obese people as the States is famous for so we attempted to ratify his American vision by attempting to gain 50 pounds in one week, pretty much eating our way through every cuisine paying special attention to New York Pizza, unique meats  like Wild Boar and Bison burgers and of course stopping for some Southern BBQ at Hill Country.  It’s a miracle I still fit into my jeans this week…

In all seriousness, we love living in New York and Deb and Lloyd really enjoyed their experience here and took all their weird experiences in stride.   We had a great time joking around with this easy-going pair.  Luckily Lloyd likes to imitate American accents as much as Alex likes to imitate British ones so they pretty much were constantly having accent battles to the death of Deb and me.   We also learned important things like, did you know that an oven in England is called a “Cooker,”  that they don’t have lemon flavored yogurt and that American microwaves are twice the size of British ones?  When Deb and Lloyd asked why it needed to be any bigger than a single dinner plate, I really didn’t know what to say.  It’s not like anyone cooks a whole turkey in their microwave right?

Despite their busy trip, we made time for a photo session at High Line Park and Brooklyn Bridge at sunset which they wanted to commemorate their trip

Rustic Storybook Stylized Shoot | NY Wedding Photographer

Been dying to share these images with you… you may have seen a few sneak peeks on my website already.  After a lot of hard work and brainstorming with talented NYC Wedding vendors, a bunch of us took a trip a few hours upstate and pulled together this beautiful rustic storybook shoot for your enjoyment.  We were so thrilled that this shoot was published today on Style Me Pretty NY!

Our models Asiya and Ramon,  though you wouldn’t know by looking at them,  are not professional models, but a sweet married couple of 6 years who are soon to have their first child (Asiya was barely showing at all as you can see…).  They were so helpful and happy to be a part of this shoot, and I in turn was happy to give this couple, who didn’t have a professional photographer on their wedding day,  a set of their own wedding images to enjoy!

Other lovely vendors to work with were first and foremost my co-concept designer,  graphic designer Sofia Whiddon of Sia Designs and Event Coordinator Emily Stripling of Mustard Seed Events who in addition to coordination and event design did the florals too!  Other collaborators included bridal headpieces from Preston and Olivia and MacarOn cafe.

The morning light was to die for

These kind of photos were easy because they really are so in love!

Hard to believe she’s not a model, right?

Look at Sofia’s creative design for a save the date…a countdown window!  The pattern she came up with was inspired by art deco designs.

Chloe Worthley | NYC Newborn Baby Photographer

It was such a joy to work with this beautiful family again, and to meet their new little treasure- Chloe, whose little personality (you will no doubt agree from these photos) was already shining through at only 3 weeks.   For her first photo session (which she seemed to quite enjoy) she was surrounded by many people who love her including her grandparents who visited from Australia and her three year old brother James (who you may remember from our family session in October) who was just loving his little sister to pieces.  Afterwards James had a great time showing me every nook, cranny, toy and train of his play room!
