STYLE

We’re a departure from what you expect; always fresh, never cheesy. Our work blends a classic approach with an unique edge resulting in cutting-edge films that are a reflection of your distinct personal style – something you’ll (really) love for years to come.

CLARITY

We know surprises are best left for birthday parties, not wedding days. That’s why we sit down with you to get to know your needs and make sure we are on the same page before the big day. Planning your wedding is hard enough. Working with us won’t be.

GOOD TIMES

We’re a bunch of cool folks who love what we do. The bottom line is we try to make the experience of working with us fun. And whether you’re a client or a stranger who wanders into our office – there’s a decent chance you’re going to enjoy yourself. Read less

LEAP Weddings is the wedding videographer to hire! We have nothing but great things to say about them. Our wedding was filmed by Jack, Eric, and Christian and all of them were simply the best. Everyone on the team was a pleasure to work with and the finished product is absolutely incredible! We just received our video which was edited by Steph (who is also amazing!) and definitely had happy tears because it really is just the best wedding video we have ever seen. They have a unique and creative style which we love. We are obviously biased but the feedback we are receiving from our friends and family shows that LEAP Weddings is a company with very talented people and is in a class of their own! They did a great job capturing all the special moments on our wedding day. They were all very professional and worked very well with all of our other vendors. Also, they are just cool people! They made us smile and laugh quite a few times. Thank you LEAP for allowing us to relive our special day through our gorgeous video all over again. We highly recommend choosing them for your wedding videographer!

Josh, Cesar, Christian and the entire LEAP Weddings team are creative geniuses and brilliant to work with. Although we weren’t initially sure if we had room in the wedding budget for videography, we reached out and within minutes were effortlessly chatting it up with the incredibly engaging team and began to realize that LEAP Weddings is just awesome. When we got home we must have watched over a dozen cinematic summaries of happy couples getting hitched courtesy of LEAP Weddings’ Vimeo page. After each video, we felt like we now knew this random couple and were both emotionally moved by the sentiment captured and energized by the excitement of their wedding day. We made sure to do some competitive research, but in short order we decided that we had to lock it down with LEAP for our big day.

We just received our short artistic film yesterday and have already watched it 5 or 6 times in succession; each time noticing something new that we hadn’t seen or had forgotten about in the chaos of the day. They incorporate these documentary-type interviews of your family and friends that bring so much depth, emotion and character to the video. On top of that, they piece the day together in a way that flows so effortlessly. Josh, Cesar, and Christian absolutely busted their butts to get gorgeous shots of all the milestones and minutia of the day and the editor, Becky, somehow managed to take hours of raw film and craft it into an epic cinematic adventure. She made our awkward nervousness seem charming, our inside jokes have context, our bad side look good and most importantly of all, she uniquely highlighted the love and happiness we felt on our wedding day.

The LEAP Weddings team is charismatic, professional and so easy to work with. Their product is unparalleled in style and quality. If you're looking for a creative film that will truly capture your special day, we highly recommend LEAP Weddings!

We absolutely love our video footage from Leap! The Leap team was very easy to work with and took all of our feedback and preferences into account throughout the process. The team was fun and easygoing the day of the wedding (Jack and Robert), capturing great footage without us feeling like they were in the way of the events during the day. Our video highlight is better than we could have imagined and such a great memory of our wedding - they used the speeches from our family members during the reception and highlights from our church ceremony to stream together perfect highlights of all the events during the day. They put in the time and effort to make our highlight unique to us. We are so happy we hired a videographer and would recommend Leap to anyone in the broader Chicago area!

I would highly recommend Leap for your wedding. We got married in June 2014 and we searched for a company to produce a video to capture our big day. We are so lucky to have found Leap. From our very first planning meeting, to the receipt of our final edit and DVD, the whole experience was amazing. We had Josh and Charlie as our videographers during the day, and they were awesome. They not only captured the moment perfectly, but they also added a super fun element to the day. We are so happy with the end product and enjoyed working with everyone from Leap. We ended up with a fantastic highlight film of the best moments of the day, but also got unedited video of the ceremony and most of the reception. If you are considering a videographer for your wedding, I highly advise you to go for it, and I would only choose Leap!

I had an excellent experience with Leap Weddings for my July wedding, but I waited to write the review after I saw the finished product. The video exceeded all of my expectations!

Jack and Josh shot the wedding. They were extremely professional, but also fun and they were able to put us at ease with the process, which isn't always easy with a bunch of cameras on you. The lights and cameras were never in the way and they were not a distraction during the ceremony or any other parts of the wedding. Our photo shoot pre-ceremony did not go as expected and we missed a couple of our locations, but they took advantage of the time we had and got great footage of our bus ride back to the venue. They also helped me keep my sanity at a stressful moment.

We love the final product and are so happy that we worked with Leap Weddings. There are so many moments in the video that could not have been captured in the photos. I will treasure these videos and can't wait to watch them all again with our family over the holidays. Here is a link to our highlight video:

https://vimeo.com/78013720

We met with a few companies before choosing Leap Weddings. We chose Leap because the video quality is exceptional, the price was more reasonable than other vendors with comparable quality and the offering of many short highlight videos rather than a long form fit our needs. Don't waste your time searching, choose Leap Weddings, you will not be sorry.

There is a reason why Leap Weddings is rated as highly as it is. And you should sit up and take notice. Throughout our wedding planning my husband didn't want a video camera anywhere near the event. And I have to say I agreed 100% at first..... Then as we got closer and closer to the big day, I realized it was going to be really important to me to document and memorialize our wedding ceremony. I want to be able to pop in the DVD 50 years from now and take a walk down memory lane including hearing my husbands voice and seeing my friends and family in the audience. It is a special day and since you can't go back in time and relive those moments, this was going to be the next best thing. So after much conversation we agreed that documenting the ceremony would only be a possibility if (of course last minute) we could find someone a) cost competitive, b) who knew what they were doing and c) could produce something wonderful without shoving cameras in our faces and blinding us with lighting all over the place inevitably junking up our venue and getting in the way of our photographer. Ben and Steph did all of that with a calm professional confidence that let us know that like Allstate we were in good hands. Actually the best hands ever! From our first meeting with them over a beer (thank you) till the final viewing we have been nothing but blown away with them and their work. Steph is on top of her game. She's will document everything including your day of schedule and make sure Ben has everything he needs to work his magic. And we don't know what sort of wand Ben's got in his back pocket but he really made something that we love and will cherish forever. Our only regret was not having Ben and team video the entire evening. I'm confident if you just pick up the phone and call Leap, you'll be better for it.

Leap Weddings is the best wedding videography company. We had the pleasure of working with Ben Mahoney and his assistant Eli on our wedding day. Their creativity, open mindedness and unique perspective truly make your video different from all other wedding videos. They capture all of the significant moments and candid moments of your day without being intrusive. Our wedding party and guests enjoyed their humor and enthusiasm and we cannot wait to share our video with family and friends.

Leap weddings was amazing! I have never seen a wedding video edited the way leap did it! My video is so special to me I can watch it over and over again! Not only was the editing amazing but the guys were so much fun to work with! They made the day so much easier!

I didn't expect that and was so touched by the offer of that! Leap was a great decision! People cannot believe when they was my video they say feel like they watched a Hollywood movie ;).

I had such an amazing experience with these guys! When I found their website I literally spend hours looking at their sample videos. I was hooked. We made an appointment to meet with Ben and the studio manager Stephanie to get all the details. We left so happy to have found such an awesome team to work with, and were beyond excited to finalize everything and check one more thing off our to-do list of wedding planning. I would say once a week I would find myself on their website just to see if they posted anything new. It was almost guaranteed they would have me in tears over a complete strangers wedding. We had Ben and Aaron on our wedding day and they were amazing! Judging from the 2 years worth of videos I have watched online, all of their videographers and editing staff are so talented! I think some of these bigger companies just take anyone off the street to send to your wedding and then edit with very little experience. You can tell this crew really knows what they are doing! There is nothing boring and traditional about their videos. I have had people tell me they have never actually sat down and watched their wedding videos! How sad! I seriously can't stop watching ours. Instead of one big long video they let you pick a variety of favorite songs (which makes it even more personal) and make sort of music videos to them. You still get all the important parts of the wedding (ceremony & speeches etc.) but these clips are so fun and you can share them with friends and family without making them sit down for 4 hours, and there is still so much to see! It amazes me how great all the shots were in my video because at no point do I remember there being a camera in my face.... They were super fun and still so professional. They even worked so well with our photographer who was from Indianapolis and not quite familiar with the city. We left choosing our city photo spots to them. We wanted something fun and different and they made it happen and I couldn't be happier.
