From school dances to celebrations, I was always the girl with a camera in hand documenting the moments. But it wasn't until my own wedding in 2018 that I realized the true importance of freezing these moments in time, and that photography could be a true career. 

Friends started asking me to take their photos and Lexi Benjamin Photography was born. Since then, I've captured countless weddings in the Chicago area and nothing brings more joy than telling your story through a timeless approach.

In my spare time, you can find me with my family, likely in our backyard garden, completing a house project or entertaining guests. I married my high school sweetheart and together we have a son and a sweet pup named Gryff (named after Gryffindor house). We are Ohio natives who moved here after college and haven’t looked back!

Capturing your biggest day while bringing you joy is my life’s work and commitment. I can’t wait to hear your story and bring your wedding vision to life!

about LEXI

Ooh la la, it's Moi

Capturing joyous, authentic moments like when you first see each other, expressions during toasts or celebrating on the dance floor are important in reliving your day.

Candid reactions

I believe the little in-between moments are just as powerful as the big ones – the anticipation before "I do," emotion of private vows or fleeting glances during your reception. 

Intimate moments

Whether it’s your invitation suite, a family heirloom or floral design, capturing your details tells the story of not only how your day looked, but also, how it felt.
