We approach weddings with a photojournalistic style; we love capturing true and authentic moments on the wedding day. We strive to make your wedding photos unique and your own. There is no formula in the way that we approach weddings since every one is very different and we treat it as such. We also love incorporating the environment into our portraits.

We used Ben for my engagement and wedding photos. We have not received all the wedding photos, but have seen a couple and they are awesome! Our engagement photos were incredible. They are really good about capturing the regular moments that all the photographers get, but then are able to also make pieces of artwork that are just stunning photos that you happen to be in! Ben was really easy to work with, made us feel comfortable and was kind to family and friends when trying to get everyone in order. I would HIGHLY recommend them if you want above and beyond the normal "traditional" wedding photos and actually want some pieces of true artwork to have in your home.

Put briefly, Caroline + Ben are simply amazing!! HIRE THEM!! When my wife and I started researching photographers, we started online and narrowed it down to a few whose styles we really enjoyed. Caroline + Ben were already our top pick. So, then we started talking to some friends who had recently gotten married. One friend had used someone else and we asked her about her experience. In short, she said “ was ok but looking back, I wish I had gone with my first choice, Caroline + Ben.” Then our decision was basically made. We then scheduled an appointment to meet with Caroline and Ben. We immediately bonded with them. We talked about our mutual love of travel and their love story. My wife and I made the decision to pay a little more to have both Caroline and Ben present instead of one or the other and an assistant…BEST.DECISION.EVER! Because they have such a cute love together, the way they work together as a team is just as awesome. I have to advise new couples…there is always nervousness in between when the wedding is over and when you receive pictures. The funny thing for me was thinking, “Where were they all night?” But then we received the pictures and we were blown away. They were clearly EVERYWHERE!! I thought to myself, “How did they do all that?” When we looked at the very intimate moments they captured during the wedding ceremony, I am still amazed! And then at the reception…amazing again! When I think about all the times I have tried photographing a group, you usually catch people with the worst facial expressions. But Caroline + Ben have this uncanny skill of capturing everyone at their very best…smiles, laughter, hugs, tears…every amazing moment! My wife and I literally looked through the pictures over and over again. It was really like re-living the entire wedding!

As soon as we were engaged my sister (maid of honor) said we had to go with Caroline and Ben. After we booked our venue and saw they were also recommended by our venue we immediately checked out their website and contacted them. We did look at other photographers but there were no others that we felt compared. Ben is who actually shot our wedding day along with his assistant. We are extremely happy with the work and our photos. Some moments we didn't think would be captured definitely were. There was a storm rolling in and Ben captured a moment with the two of us standing outside as the lightening struck lighting up the sky (overall our favorite pic). We love looking back at our photos and laughing at all the moments that we missed during our day. We had so many favorites that it was extremely difficult to decided on the final photos for the album. Only thing we regret was not having Ben do our engagement photos. <3 J&C 10-2013

You should book Caroline + Ben. Just do it. You won't be sorry.

I hired Caroline to photograph our teeny tiny elopment at the Travis County Courthouse in June 2013. Caroline made our six-guest event look classic and charming. She was amazing and putting everyone at ease and getting through formal "posed" shots quickly to get to the fun stuff. She has an amazing eye and her shots were beautiful.

Most. Amazing. Wedding photos. EVER.

Caroline and Ben captured pure joy and jubilance on every single face that night (which is a bit of a task for almost 300 people). I still cry every time I look at them. I've had such a hard time putting into words how incredibly amazing they are. Guests at the wedding kept saying how Ben & Caroline were everywhere and nowhere at the same time. Photo Ninjas!

Some choice quotes after we received and posted our wedding photos:

"I'm going to print out ALL of your wedding photos and hang them in my house, even pictures of the beautiful people I don't know." -Sister in Law

"wow these are some of the best photos from an event that i've ever seen. I wasn't there but you captured something so special" -somebody I don't know

Ben and Caroline- there's nobody better. Period.

Caroline from Caroline + Ben Photography was absolutely amazing! Caroline was the very first vendor we locked in, photography was one of the most important pieces of our wedding ensemble… we were so happy to lock in and work with Caroline! She was so helpful throughout our planning process… she led us to many of our wonderful vendors, including our amazing Videographer (The Wedding Theater). Caroline was prompt to reply to all emails and calls. She was very thorough and clear during our meetings and met our expectations. Caroline and her team captured the emotion and story of our wedding better than we could have ever imagined. The moments she caught we unbelievable… we didn’t even know that she was snapping photos, she and her team were so stealth. Caroline also helped supply an awesome photo booth with great back drop and props; it was a highlight of the evening! Caroline is absolutely amazing, she is so easy to work with and very professional, polite and fun! Most importantly her photos are absolutely incredible! We highly recommend Caroline + Ben Photography… you will not be disappointed

Caroline and her team are awesome to work with, and the images and moments they capture on film are more than amazing. She is a pleasure to work with from the first appointment to the engagement photo shoot to the day of the wedding. The photo packages they offer include all that you need to chronicle your special day. Caroline makes everything so easy and simple and puts you and your guests at ease. I didn’t really have to give her or her team much direction. From the images I saw on their website, I knew I was in good hands. I trusted that they knew what they were doing and I was so pleased with the finished product. She has a good eye for getting the right shots at the right moments without you even knowing she is there. Caroline is so creative and innovative with the photos and moments that were captured. Her and her team give you so many different angles and perspective that it takes you right back to the moment and you experience it all over again. All of our guests who have seen the photos rave about how awesome they are, and request the images they want to keep for themselves. We can’t thank Caroline enough for the wonderful images she captured, and the beautiful moments that we can look back on and remember forever.

You can look through Caroline's portfolio and see that she is an awesome photographer. But what you won't know until you book her is that she is truely a gem! Caroline truely made our engagement session so much fun! She picked an orginal area for us to shoot. She utilized the area so well that we didn't need to go to several locations to get shots that looked miles from each other! We couldn't be happier with out engagement photos, we have gotten endless compliments on them! We got a sneak peek of our wedding day photos and they are amazing! I can't wait to see all of them. I know they will be even more gorgeous then the engagement! Thank you Caroline for capturing everything so beautifully!

I can't say enough great things about Caroline. She is amazing. I continue to get compliments about my engagement session, and so many compliments about how wonderfully she captured the true emotion of my wedding day. She goes above and beyond to make sure the bride is happy, and doesn't mind literally getting in the dirt for a great shot. Even better, when there was a threat of rain, she told me how great that lighting made photos. She made a nervous bride a bit more calm about the weather. She was open to my every thought an suggestion and had some great ones herself. She is amazing, I am so happy/pleased/elated with what she and her 2nd photog did for our wedding day.

Caroline is the absolute best in the business- she came recommended to me by a professional photographer- what more can you ask for? From the moment we met she was completely professional, and by the end I want to count her as one of my friends. The photographer was the most important vendor to me, and as such Caroline was my first choice and the first vendor I booked. I could not be happier with her work!! All my friends and relatives are STILL calling and asking "who was your photographer?!" and "where do I get copies of these fantastic photos?!" Of all the stresses I had on the wedding day, worrying about the photography turning out well was not one of them, and that was worth way more than we paid for Caroline's beautiful work. Thank you Caroline!!

Like her business name implies, Caroline is an extremely sweet person to work with. She will not hesitate to get down and dirty to capture an amazing shot. She was always punctual and answered all of my emails right away. It was easy to schedule a engagement shoot day with her. After each shoot, she was super quick to have a few teaser photos posted on her blog within a week, and had the rest of the images available within the time frame she promised.

I have no regrets having her do my engagement and wedding photography. Every image is bright and breathtaking and has her own special touch. She captured all the small details and moments that we were unable to see come to life at our wedding. We cannot stop looking through them again and again. The photographs she took have become one of our most valued possessions. You will not regret having Sweet Caroline photograph your wedding or any special occasion!

Where do I even start? From the very first email and consultation, I knew that Ben was flexible, professional, experienced, easy going, and accommodating. I knew he had the photography skills from viewing his portfolio online but he completely went above and beyond. Ben listened to what I had envisioned for our engagement session and he found the perfect location for us and worked with us to get amazing pictures. I also had my bridal pictures done with him and ill planning on my part left me without a framed picture for the wedding and it was days away! Ben shows up the day of with a beautiful portrait for me. Amazing! Ben and Caroline were wonderful on the day of the wedding. They were nonintrusive (you know the kind, where it seems like they're at the altar with you) but were able to capture amazing pictures from all different angles.
Seriously, I don't know what more I can say to convince you Ben is the photographer for you! I could go on and on though. Oh and as an extra special touch, our CD was sent in an amazing keepsake container. From beginning to end, Ben was amazing and exceeded all our expectations.

The second Daniel and I met with Ben, we knew right away that he would do an amazing job with capturing every moment of our engagement through our wedding night! After looking through HUNDREDS of other local photographers' portfolios, we knew we had to have Ben for the wedding. He truly has a gift of capturing every moment in the best light. From the very start, Daniel and I have been blown away by every photo Ben has captured. We couldn't have asked for anything more from Ben. Without him, we wouldn't have been given the blessing of reliving the wedding everyday through his pictures. You can count on Ben for capturing literally EVERY second of your wedding! Thank you Ben for everything you have given Daniel! Your photography was the best wedding present, EVER! :)

I can't recommend Ben highly enough. Photography was one of the most important things to us about the wedding and, boy, are we happy we went with him! We are so pleased with the photos he took, and all of our friends and family have been raving about them as well. He captured so many great and funny moments from our wedding day...I can't stop looking at the photos and know that we'll enjoy looking back and reliving the day for years to come. Not only is Ben a wonderful photographer, but he's super nice and professional and great to work with. I'd recommend hiring him along with his partner so that you get pictures from two different perspectives - we did and are very happy we went that route. Thank you, Ben!!

Ben was outstanding! His finished product was amazing; his photographs helped me relive those amazing moments and appreciate those special details that I didn't have time to see on the day-of. He was prompt, flexible, and kind, as well as easy and fun to work with. Everyone loved him, and all of my friends and family can't believe how great his pictures look. He took a variety of shots - classic, candid, and artistic - something for everyone! I highly recommend him to all brides in the Austin area.

Ben is fabulous! We can not express how happy we are with our photos. He got some great candid shots, there were times we didn't even know he was around. He has a great eye for using the surrounding landscape and capturing the perfect moments. We had a few suggestions of our own and he was totally open to them.
We aren't from the area so when we found him online it was a total gamble, and we could not be happier. We would absolutely and without hesitation recommend him fully! Thank you Ben!

Our wedding day was hectic (as is everyone else's), she turned out to be a perfect wedding gift to ourselves. We recommend her to everyone, but usually we don't have to. Guests that couldn't make it to the wedding ask us, "WHO WAS YOUR PHOTOG, SHE WAS AMAZING, THE PICTURES MADE ME FEEL LIKE I WAS ACTUALLY AT THE WEDDING."

Ben Godkin is a must-have for your engagement session and wedding day. He's not only professional and responsive, but he's amazingly talented. When I was originally on the hunt to find a photographer, I didn't have any referrals...just the Internet. It was quite a difficult search, as so many photographers out there are "cookie cutter" and borderline cheesy. I was looking for someone with artistic vision and a unique take on wedding photography - nothing too fancy or off-the-wall but just enough to make it feel and look special. After seeing Ben's portfolio online, I thought his work was great. After seeing OUR photos, I know for sure he was the perfect choice. He gave us exactly what we were looking for, and made us feel comfortable throughout our experiences with him. My husband and I are simply thrilled with our photos!

Hands down, you should go with Ben Godkin for your wedding photography - He did such an amazing job that ALL my friends want him now too. I've gone to 3 wedding after my own and all I hear about is the amazing job that Ben did. Ben really went out of his way for us - meeting with us twice at random times since my husband and I had crazy schedules. He even came up to Killeen with my crazy family to greet my husband (fiance at the time) who was returning from Iraq. I didn't remind him about the photographer I had brought - but there was no need - Ben blended right in and Will never had a clue. All our pictures show our genuine emotions, but look like works of art. I want to print everything out on canvas and hang it all up! Ben has such a great eye for the most stunning pictures. Teasing light, reflections, lines, shapes, - his gifts! He offered great advice and really became our friend through the whole process. I could go on forever really, so please check out his awesome blog and meet him!! (and hurry, word is getting out about how great he is so his calendar is filling up!!) Thanks Ben!!!

Ben is a great photographer and is extremely easy to work with. The day before the wedding, when we realized we needed a picture printed out for our guest book table, he helped us out and had it ready to go the next day. He was inobtrusive during the wedding, but still got great shots of the ceremony and the reception. My husband and I were very happy with the pictures we got back and would recommend Ben to other couples.

Caroline certainly makes beautiful pictures, no doubt about that, but I was really disappointed in our wedding photos. We didn't view our wedding as a photo shoot or an opportunity to make art, which I think is how Caroline viewed it. For us, our wedding was a celebration of life with all our most loved family and friends... and very few of them wound up in the photographs of our wedding. Five months later, that still makes me really sad.

Disappointments:
- Even though Caroline asked ahead of time for a list of the group photos I wanted taken in the church following the ceremony, she did not take all those photos and in the busy-ness of the day, I didn't remember all of them. As a result there is not a single picture of me and my niece. (I only have one neice and one nephew.)
- During the posed group photos in the church, Caroline had everyone who wore glasses take their glasses off so that there wasn't a glare from her flash. Well, this is just silly - someone who has worn glasses every day of his adult life (e.g. my dad) does not look like himself if he isn't wearing them. I feel this is a fairly standard photographic challenge that she should have been able to handle. And then my absent-minded bro-in-law left his glasses dangling from his suit pocket, which doesn't look right in a formal picture. This is a little nit-picky, but taken as a whole, seemed to me to be another example of Caroline not being on top of her game.
- At Caroline's suggestion, we took a break in the middle of our reception to take photos of my hubby and me outside. Our reception venue was beautiful and we wanted to be sure it was included in photos, so we were happy to do this, but clarified ahead of time how long we should budget for these photos, because celebrating with our family and friends was really our focus and we didn't want to spend the whole afternoon alone posing for the camera. Caroline told us 20 minutes. Unfortunately, 30 minutes later Caroline was absorbed in getting just the right angle - we were visibly anxious and finally told her that we needed to get back. Even then, she wanted to take photos at another spot on-site.
- There are less than 10 photos of my very large extended family (other than those that were specifically posed in the church). Out of literally hundreds of photos. The reason is that they didn't spend much time on the dance floor. And looking at our photos, that is where Caroline and her assistant camped out. I didn't spend much time on the dance floor either, but I guess that's where the "fun" photo-taking opportunities were. I know photos of people you don't know sitting around talking is probably not interesting to a stranger, but these are people we love who came to share this day with us. I would love to see pictures of them celebrating with us - even if they aren't dancing. As our photographer, Caroline should have wanted to take those photos too - even if they won't be good material for her portfolio. I just can't believe that this is something I needed to tell a wedding photographer.
- Caroline works with an assistant. I got the impression that we would have two photographers that day, which was a big bonus, considering the price. Caroline did not present it that way - that we would have two photographers - but neither did she correct my obvious misunderstanding. When I asked if one of them could photograph me and my bridesmaids getting ready while the other was photographing my husband and his groomsmen, she hesitantly agreed. When the photos came back, however, there were very few of the photos that the assistant took of my bridesmaids and me. I guess this is why she doesn't have him work as an independent second photographer, but as her assistant. (He mostly took all the same photos she did, at the same time she did, just at a slightly different angle.) I would have appreciated it if she had clarified this when it was obvious that I had misunderstood his capabilities/role.
- Caroline seems a little distracted and in retrospect did not have a good handle on the wedding details.

Successes:
- beautiful portraits
- dvd with all images and full permission to use them

In summary, I would be hesitant to recommend Caroline. The photos she does take are beautiful, but there were a LOT of photos that she didn't take, but should have.

We chose Ben Godkin because of his fresh, unique style. So much time and consideration goes into the seemingly endless wedding details, and Ben managed to capture each and every one with grand flare. He was in the perfect spot at the perfect moment as the event unfolded. Ben is dedicated, enthusiastic, and easy to work with. He took a moment in time and created beautiful images that will be cherished and enjoyed for years to come. Thank you, Ben!

Wow! that is the only opening statement I can think of that is appropriate for Ben's work. From engagement pictures to wedding day Ben was phenomenal. What about Ben makes him so great to work with? He is creative, artistic, open minded, and just has a great eye for capturing perfect memorable shots. The pictures he took from our wedding day are not just pictures, they are a complete story from start to finish. Now we can look back and have a perfect detailed reflection of our favorite day. I cannot thank Ben enough and recommend him enough!

This photographer was one of the best vendors that I have ever delt with and would deal with during my wedding planning process. Not only did she make you feel comfortable and help guide you in your ideas for the photographs that you were wanting to create, but she went beyond expectations to deliver a final product that will be cherished by our entire family and for generations to come. I would recomment this vendor to any bride or family seeking someone as caring as Caroline to help you create memories that will last a life time. She is not just a photographer, but an artist!

Sweet Caroline - is simply the BEST in wedding photography. Our pictures are not only amazing but wow, she took so many! She makes you feel so comfortable. You feel like your uber talented best friend is doing the work. She's down to earth and is really kind and so approachable. We loved her style so much that we would have moved our wedding date in order to book her. I completely recommend her.

Ben could not have been any better! He was so professional, so patient, and so much fun to have around during the whole process. My husband and I felt so comfortable being ourselves around him, which led to some really amazing, very true-to-us shots. Caroline helped out during my bridals and the wedding, and she was absolutely amazing, too. Photography was the most important aspect in the planning process, and we were definitely not disappointed. He makes everyone happy with the variety of shots he gets, too--from us and our friends to our parents and grandparents. In my husband's words, "Ben's awesome."

Sweet Caroline Photo was my wedding photographer. And I'm SO GLAD that she was! She is a true artist and a real master of her craft. That combined with her amazing equipment makes for truly artistic, amazing, & unforgettable photographs!

She shot a wedding that my then-fiance-now-husband was in, and he knew then that he wanted her to do ours as well. I'm so glad he has such good taste!

She's also super cool and sooo nice, AND very good at making you feel comfortable in front of the camera, even if you're famously not-so. (like me.)

I love my wedding (and engagement) photos so much, I can't stop looking at them. And I'm so grateful to her and glad that I will have them to look at for the rest of my life. She's the best and totally worth it. Trust me, if you do decide to go with her, you won't regret it!

Booking Sweet Caroline Photo was one of the best decisions I made when planning my wedding. She is an absolute joy to work with and I couldn't be happier with our engagement pics or wedding photos. If you're looking for standard, stagnant pictures, Caroline is NOT the gal for you. Her use of color and the way she captures the tiniest nuances of emotion on film is absolutely stunning and you end up with memories that have so much more life and character than you thought possible. She is worth every penny, and on top of that, she is extremely affordable! Plus she is not one of those photographers that makes you buy your pictures from her for ridiculous prices, the rights to the photos are yours to keep! Book her now, before it's too late!

Caroline is an amazing photographer! She provides amazing professionally edited and artistic photographs worth much more than she charges. I highly recommend her for any bride - those on a budget and those who aren't!

Specific things I loved about Caroline's work:
1 - Our affordable package included wedding and engagement photos
2 - We got a free Guest Book with our engagement photos in it that guests loved signing
3 - The photos had great turn-around - we saw our wedding photos while we were on our honeymoon!
4 - Our wedding day was really stressful (of course!) but I felt like all the photos Caroline took reflected the beauty and love of the day - The way I want to remember the wedding!

Besides marrying a fabulous man, hiring Ben Godkin Photography was the absolute best decision I made for my wedding day. Folks are STILL complimenting us on the photos--almost nine months later. From the moment we met Ben and saw his collection, we knew that he would capture moments of our wedding day in an authentic and artistic way. Every encounter we had with Ben was professional and courteous. He was prompt in all of his responses to our questions and requests and he is so easy to work with. We are so, so happy to have a beautiful collection of photos to remember our time with our family and friends. I can not recommend Ben highly enough.

Caroline is an energetic, creative photographer, with an easy-going style and the talent to capture people at their best. In all of the shots of our wedding reception and ceremony she captured everyone's joy and smiling faces... it is really remarkable how she is able to discreetly capture people in mid-laugh, or during tender moments on the dance floor. At my nontraditional Halloween wedding reception, she spontaneously came up with the great idea to set up a "photo-booth" to capture everyone's great costumes. Caroline is a highly professional photographer with a fun-loving side that will bring out the best view of everyone at your event. I will highly recommend her services to any bride I meet in the future!

Sweet Caroline Photo provided more than I could have asked for. The company did my Bridal Portraits in June which turned out great and then did our wedding in September. Our outdoor wedding was moved due to rain and they never missed a beat. They also provided excellent video service which I was not anticipating as they were experimenting with new equipment. I am positive that this video will be cherished and watched more often than the actual people we hired to do the videography. Our friends and family are not from the Austin area and were truly amazed at the wonderful talent and creativity of this team.

Ben Godkin photographed my wedding on Aug. 8, 2009. He had previously shot weddings of two of my friends. I was amazed by the pictures from both of those weddings. He has an eye for catching creative shots. He mixes class with creativity. I have shown the proofs to many friends in the past few weeks and they cannot stop raving about how great they are.

Ben has a great way of making you feel at ease, while also ensuring that the job gets done. I am definitely no supermodel, but his engagement pictures, bridal portraits, and wedding photos make me feel like one. He is so friendly with his clients and you can tell he absolutely loves what he does. My husband and I had a great time working with him. We got to have some classic shots, while also mixing in a few crazy shots that really captured our outgoing personality. Ben has a great gift for finding a way of capturing who you really are in the photos.

I am very happy to share any information with anyone about Ben ... I'm so lucky we found him for our wedding.

My husband and I opted out of paying a lot of money for a videographer and decided to find an awesome photographer to document our day. Caroline and her team did just that! Our guests' personalities and memorable moment were perfectly caught on film. Our day was so hectic and such a blur, but looking at our pictures brings everything back to mind! The photos were timed perfectly, the lighting was gorgeous, and the pictures were beautiful!

Ben Godkin is, to say the least, the most personable, responsible, and professional photographer I have ever met. He took the most amazing pictures. We had our engagement pictures, my bridal portraits, and our wedding pictures taken by Ben. WE are so happy with his work. Looking through our pictures brings back the same feelings and happiness we felt. We definitely relive every moment when we look at our pictures. Thank you, Ben!

Ben Godkin was an exceptional photographer. He captured everything we wanted and more. His style of photography is amazing i still can't stop looking at my wedding pictures. The quality of video he took was incredible. My husband said when we first watched it that it was like we were watching an actual movie. I could not have been more pleased with his work. His site is great as well, easy to order prints for yourself or for family and friends to DIY.

First off, Ben takes the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen. His skill and personality make him one-of-a-kind. It is quite obvious that he loves his job, because he always has a huge smile on his face when he's taking pictures!

Ben was VERY easy to work with and extremely helpful. He was also very flexible when we needed him to stay longer than originally planned. Ben can turn a seemingly normal shot into something extraordinary. His creativity is endless and he strives to make the customer happy. If I had it to do over, I wouldn't change a thing :D
