Bridgette benson

I am Bridgette Benson. I am married to my high school sweetheart, Dylan Benson. Together we have one son and two dogs!

I grew up on a dairy farm in Sandwich, IL and attended Lewis University for my Bachelors Degree in Paralegal Studies. I love reading books. My favorite authors are Jodi Picoult, John Grisham and JD Robb. My husband is my rock and my crazy -idea sounding board. We now call Lockport, IL home. 

I love meeting new people and making friends. I hope to hear from you soon!

Dylan Benson

Dylan is my husband and the CFO for Bridgette Benson Photography. He double majored in college and has his bachelors degree in Finance and Economics. He is also a super supportive husband and photographs weddings with me on Saturdays and Sundays!
Dylan loves football and playing poker in his spare time. (Go Steelers!) 

He is a USMC veteran and has been all over the world while on deployments!

He is an excellent father and loving husband and just an overall joy to be around. You definitely want him at your wedding!

Jasmine Merfled

Jasmine is one of my mentors and inspirations in photography. Jasmine is a fashion and portrait photographer from the Chicago-land area. 

She is a kind, true and genuine friend.
Jasmine is stuck in the 70's (even though we are both 90's babes) and she loves that retro vibe. She completely rocks it, too. Her favorite band is The Beatles.

  Jasmine is a great mother.
Her daughter Melody and my son Oliver are destined to be best friends, just like us!

Dylan is my high school sweetheart turned husband | We just celebrated our 8 year dating anniversary and will celebrate our first wedding anniversary in October. Oliver is our son. He is full of energy and cuddles and keeps me on my toes! We have two dogs, Kalishka and Gage. They are the original Benson babies!

raves and reviews

"Bridgette is incredibly talented, I would highly recommend her for any of your photo needs. This was my first photo shoot of any kind, so I was a bit nervous that I would screw up the pictures. But, Bridgette was very patient with me, and very good at guiding us so that the photos would turn out beautifully. She is very personable, sweet, and fun. We had a blast with our photo shoot. Thank you again, Bridgette! You’re amazing!"

“Bridgette will go above and beyond to make your pictures spectacular! We hired her to photograph my sister's wedding and on that day it was POURING rain. She wasn't phased at all and ended up getting creative and capturing the most precious moments with what she had inside to work with. She is punctual, quick to respond back, her ideas are fresh and fun, and is the sweetest lady you'll ever work with. You won't regret hurting her for your next event or photography needs!”

“Bridgette photographed my sister and I for a gift we were giving our mom for her birthday. To this day my mom still brings out the book and shows it to guests. It was great working with Bridgette! She has a great eye and created photos that were beautiful. Thank you!”
