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!

Happy New Year to my clients and readers!  This ballet inspired wedding shoot photographed at the Chelsea Mansion was one of my favorite shoots of the year.  Partially because of how entertaining it is to play with pointe shoes, ribbon and tulle and partially because of the fun and talented people I got to work with.  The wonderful ladies of Cheeky Details came up with the vision for this gorgeous ballet wedding shoot, and I was so thrilled when they asked me to capture every detail.  Watercolors, ruffles, ribbons, and tulle with lots of blush pink and pops of crimson looked especially gorgeous on film and by the end of the day I had shot close to thirty rolls.  These images were featured on Style Me Pretty on Christmas Eve, who thought a subtle nod to the Nutcracker would make for the perfect holiday wedding. (I quite agree).  Our models were actually a real couple (who has yet to get engaged) so I lent our lovely model my engagement ring.  The twisted band, resembling the ribbons of her pointe shoes, was the perfect finishing touch!

Lauren and Cole spent most of their relationship (including most of their engagement) apart: Lauren working in NYC as a Kindergarten Teacher and Cole living in Texas taking on the finance world.  It’s hard to imagine how anyone could make this work, until you meet Lauren and Cole.  Lauren is one of those proverbially gorgeous girls who doesn’t know it.  Cole knows it though. His face simply beams when he looks at her.  Cole is a quiet guy whose inner-strength compliments Lauren’s warmth and depth of feeling.  The energy between them is that sweet, dewy-eyed, young kind of love that can sometimes fade after a couple’s first few months together.  Not for Lauren and Cole!  It’s this passion and strength of their connection that has held them together from afar.  At their lovely Autumn Princeton wedding, I had the privilege to witness and capture those looks again and again.  From their heart-melting first look, to the glances they exchanged during  the ceremony, from their first dance to their looks shared during the toasts, Lauren and Cole were the idyllic image of giddy newlyweds, eager to start their lives together, finally under the same roof in the same state.

My wonderful second shooter Kristy and I had a fabulous time spending the day with this sweet couple and their delightful family and friends.  After getting ready with her fun and attentive bridesmaids, Lauren and Cole met for their first look on the Princeton Campus under the beautiful Gothic arches.  Their ceremony at Princeton Trinity Church was the perfect setting for this traditional couple’s vows and for Lauren’s gorgeous cathedral-length veil.  A beautiful rendition of Ave Maria brought tears to some eyes, as did Lauren’s Dad’s touching toast later in the night.  At their reception at the Nassau Inn, Lauren’s Dad offered a lot of great marriage advice, and I was touched by one piece so much that I shared it with my husband when I got home that night: “Always choose being together even over opportunities to make more money that require you to be apart.”  Lauren’s sister and Cole’s brother gave hilarious speeches that had everyone laughing.  Everyone danced the night away, and after a fabulous time with family and friends Lauren and Cole whisked away to St. Lucia to celebrate their first days together as husband and wife by soaking up some sun.

Thank you Lauren and Cole for inviting me to be a part of your gorgeous wedding day and for the super flattering review.  I am honored to have been a witness to all the joy, laughter and tears!

Tory and John met under the most extreme of circumstances.  Both had voluntarily chosen to be in them however: it was during a character-building sailing program by Outward Bound.  These two, along with nine other students and two instructors spent five nights off the coast of Maine living on this thirty-foot pull boat.  Conditions were extreme.  Every night, they slept head to toe on the deck across the wooden oars.  They cooked, ate, did everything on the boat.  It poured the whole first twenty four hours of the journey, soaking everyone and all their stuff for the rest of the trip.   Both of them describe their sailing adventure as an absolutely miserable experience, but one they’d never exchange.  That’s where they met each other, after all!

After their feet were finally on land again, John and Tory were inseparable.  In fact, Tory can’t seem to distinguish one moment when they officially became an item.  For these two, being together was so comfortable and and natural, they sort of just eased right into it.   This sort of comfort and ease between them was evident from the couple of hours I spent running around Central Park and the Upper West Side taking pictures of these two (who happen to be my neighbors – living only one block away from me!)  Tory and John love to laugh, and try to never take anything too seriously.  While it’s obvious that they both have an adventurous side, their preferred date would be eating ice cream and watching a movie together on the couch in their P.J.s.

Several years later, when John proposed on one knee, in the middle of their apartment surrounded by flowers, candles, and  rose petals, Tory said yes.  Because if these two could survive five days on a thirty-foot boat together, what can life possibly throw at them that they can’t handle together?
