We are Jake and Jennifer Moreland, owners of Two Birds Photography. We work out of our home in the Chicago Suburbs, although we always have our passports at hand and we love roadtrips! Just ask us! Our cute little outdoor wedding in 2006 created the perfect union of a photographer and a designer. As a husband-and-wife team, we have worked side by side from the beginning and founded Two Birds Photography in 2008. We are the proud parents to our three awesome sons, Gray, Bear and Milo who we fondly refer to as our unpaid interns. at home we share our quarters with our two Boxers and our blind cat, who are usually underfoot. It’s a full house, and absolutely bursting with love! Working together has been an awesome experience and owning our own business has been enriching beyond anything we imagined. When we work with each other, our goal is to capture who you are and the amazing love that you share! Our individual strengths blend seamlessly to create a beautiful end-product we know you'll treasure for years to come. Please give us a call, or shoot us an email to set up a time to chat! We would love a chance to work together to capture your love-story. Read less

I don't know where to begin. Jake and Jen Moreland are beyond talented photographers, I think that is made quite obvious from their photos on their website, here, and on numerous wedding style blogs. My husband and I knew from the start that the Morelands are who we wanted to share this day with. We worked with Jake for our engagement pictures and decided to have both of them photograph our wedding at Brookfield Zoo. Jen hung out with the girls most of the morning, and Jake with the guys.

Like most people, I am not used to getting my picture taken and having cameras pointing in my direction. Having Jake and Jen there, and knowing the work they do, gave me a sense and trust in whatever moments they were capturing were going to be authentic and truly encompass the best moments of our day.

Photos are the one thing you get to have forever (besides your spouse) and I am beyond happy with the final results. To be honest, looking over the photos after the event was almost as fun as the event itself.

I will never stop telling people about Two Birds Photography (even strangers).

I cannot say enough nice things about Jake and Two Birds Photography. My fiance and I thought that picking a photographer was going to be one of the most difficult jobs we had while wedding planning. Boy, we're we wrong! We knew the second we met Jake that he was the perfect photographer for our special day. His laid back personality, constant professionalism, and most importantly the level of talent in his work made Two Birds Photography an easy and obvious choice for our wedding.
On our wedding day Jake was by far our favorite vendor. He was so patient with us and our huge wedding party and seamlessly fit right into our hectic morning. Even with three little kids running all over the place, Jake was able to get the perfect shots of our flower girls and ring bearer. It was clear that Jake has a lot of experience with getting kids (AND adults) in the right places without being pushy or overbearing. Our wedding party loved Jake and told us over and over again how much they enjoyed working with him. Jake took everything in stride and was extremely flexible when we were pulling him in all different directions. We never saw Jake without a smile on his face!
It was no surprise when we received our pictures (only a few weeks later!) that they were the most beautiful things we had ever seen. We thought maybe we were biased but when we sent the photos to our family and friends there was nothing but compliments about the beautiful and artistic photos. Jake not only captured the big moments of our day in the photographs but also the love we have for each other.
We are sad that our wedding day is over but we feel more than lucky that we have Jake's wonderful pictures to help us relive the best day of our lives! We hope we can work with Jake in the future to capture more of our life's big moments! :)
We would recommend Two Birds Photography to anyone who is looking for a talented, genuine and professional photographer for any special event!

We are so glad we chose Two Birds Photography -- Jake and Jennifer are wonderful! We knew from the initial meeting that it was a good fit for us. Jake was so easy to be around and we felt relaxed and at ease with him. From choosing the right package for our needs and budget, through scheduling our engagement session and wedding timeline, Jake and Jennifer were so accommodating and helpful! They are true professionals. We were enjoying our honeymoon when we got our wedding proofs back-- now that is quick turnaround! If you're looking for a fun photographer that you can just be yourself around, choose Two Birds Photography. You will not regret it!

I can't even express in words how wonderful our experience was with Two Birds Photography. Jake and Jennifer are not only incredibly talented but such a joy to work with. Finding the perfect photographer was the first thing on my wedding to do list, as I believe that the photos are the only thing you will have forever. It was such a relief when my husband and I met Jake at a coffee shop because I knew within the first 5 minutes that he would be our perfect wedding photographer. Nick and I had a blast with Jake as he shot our engagement pictures. We felt so comfortable with him and were laughing the entire time. We were amazed at his artistic eye and how well he was able to truly capture our love. On our wedding day, Jake was there early to shoot pictures of the landscape of our hotel and the amazing architecture of Chicago. Our entire bridal party raved about how much fun and professional Jake was on the trolley with us, as he was able to capture our trip from the city to Evanston. Our families and our wedding guests had nothing but amazing things to say about him as well. When we received our wedding slideshow, I couldn't help but cry with happiness. I felt like I was reliving the day all over again. I was so overjoyed at how well Jake was able to capture every emotion on our wedding day. I will use Two Birds for my entire life; prenatal photos, family portraits, etc. They are everything we could have asked for and way, way more.

We met Jake at our friend's wedding (as their photographer) and instantly felt a connection. Needless to say, he was our first choice in photography when we got engaged. His work is beyond outstanding. He has a real artistic eye and aims to include his artistic ability along with his clients' personalities and interests in each photo. We had a large wedding party (20) along with over 300 guests, but Jake was very laidback and patient and took a great assortment of pictures. We were so happy when we got our pictures back (they actually arrived to our house before we got back from our honeymoon!) and have had the best time reliving the special moments, tears, and laughter. Jake does a wonderful job of really capturing what the day is all about - love. I honestly cannot wait to work with him again someday!!

Jen drove down all the way to Louisville, KY to shoot our wedding given only a couple weeks notice. She was amazing to work with and our pictures turned out better then we could have imagined. I am not photogenic at all, but Jen must be a miracle worker because our pictures looked phenomenal.

Thank you Two Birds!

Jake was not only extremely easy to work with, very professional AND attentive, but he takes awesome photos, too! I suppose that should be first & foremost when it comes to looking for a photographer, but I think the work ethic can be just as important...especially on a hectic day like a wedding. I've been to a lot of weddings in the past where the bride/groom had to give the photographer very specific direction to achieve what they were looking for. My wife and I are not photographers, so we were hoping to have someone tell US what would work best. For us, we gave Jake some rough ideas of groupings/locations and he did all the work from there. His directions were easy to follow, and he was constantly taking photos or scouting out other cool locations in the venue. One thing I loved was that he didn't do a lot of the posed, "Say Cheese!" photos with groups of people when mingling throughout the course of the night. All of his photos were candid and captured REAL moments...REAL smiles. That was one of my favorite aspects of how he works. When he takes photos, you can see the look on his face...the look of an artist. The look of someone who will not settle for anything less than perfect, and will only attach his name to a photo that he takes pride in. This is very comforting, because you know that most of the post-wedding selection work will be easy. Or hard, I guess, depending on how you look at it. When you get hundreds of photos back and almost 100% of them are awesome, it makes it hard to pick favorites! Highly, highly, highly recommended!!!

Jake shot our December wedding was wonderful! We love our photographs and he captured all the details we requested. He was extremely calm and easy-going which was great b/c we had a very large wedding and big families, so lots of people to get in and out of photos. He even hand delivered or wedding album to make sure we got it! I would use Jake again for family photos in the future and highly recommend Two Birds. They are a great value as well.

If I could give Two Birds 6 stars, I would! They are the reason that my husband and I are STILL getting compliments on our wedding day, nearly one year later. From the planning process to execution, Jake's professionalism, creativity and sheer kindness helped make our day better than we had hoped. He captured moments I couldn't have dreamt up while also making sure to check everything off of our wish list. It was clear in our photos, and the experience, that Jake not only respects his art and the emotion it evokes, but also what this day meant to us. Add to that his wife's impeccable design andpagination talent when designing our album, and there is no better pair for capturing the best day of your life. Period.
