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, which means we are big Ohio State fans, but enjoy Chicago sports outings too! We 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

The celebratory and quiet moments of anticipation before “I do” is the best way to start a wedding day and is where the story of your day begins.

Getting ready

Whether it’s your custom invites, a family heirloom, floral design or a show stopper moment, capturing your details tells the story of not only how your day looked, but also, how it felt.


My favorite portrait encapsulates the emotion of your day in a single photo – the two of you walking hand-in-hand, looking at each other and taking everything in.
