We are Jake and Jennifer Moreland, owners of Two Birds Photography. Two Birds Photography is based out of Westmont, IL. Although we shoot primarily in Chicago and it's Suburbs, we are always up for a road trip!

Our cute little outdoor wedding in 2006 created the perfect union of a photographer and a designer-slash-photographer. As a husband-and-wife team, we have worked side by side from the begi nning and founded Two Birds Photography in 2008.

We work from home with our sons, Graysen and Bear, and our two Boxer pups. Working together has been an awesome experience and starting our own business has been enriching beyond anything we imagined. When we work with each other, whether that be shooting together, editing images or designing a wedding album, our goal is to capture who you are, and the amazing love you share! Our individual strengths blend seamlessly to create a beautiful end product we know you'll love.

We look forward to working together to capture your love-story. Read less

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.

Two Birds was great! Very professional, prompt, caring, and willing to do anything the couple wants. We had Jake take our engagement photos and wedding photos and he did a great job capturing the moments! Paid attention to the details and the moments that mattered. Takes his job seriously, but relaxed and easy going.

Two Birds Photography was my vendor crush! When first got engaged I was asking on a forum board what photographer other brides were using. Someone recommended Two Birds. The moment I saw their website I knew they had to be out wedding photographer. The photos Jake takes are art. He captures emotions, shadows and the entire experience of the day. He makes an ordinary elements look extraordinary. Jake was so flexible and easy to work with. I never felt pressured. My parents both loved him. They said he was very easy going. When they saw they final product they were floored. We took photos at the bowling alley that my husband and I met at between the church and the reception. The photos turned out so fun and full of life. I received access to all my prints online and my disc in the mail within 2 weeks of my wedding date. Much faster than I had expected. If you appreciate the art of photography you will love this company.

Jake did our engagement photos in the city and then our beach wedding in FL last fall. The photos were incredible!! It was really important to us to not have the usual boring traditional photos. The wedding day was long, but Jake kept up and did not miss a beat, he captured all the details. Very professional to work with. I love following their blog and seeing all the new pics they post :) You can tell they love what they do!

I can't say enough good things about Jake and Jennifer! Jake was an absolutely superb photographer. They were fantastic from our first contact through the wedding, always very professional, warm and quick to respond. Jake listened to exactly what we wanted from our photos and then delivered just that. He was everywhere during the wedding, guests even commented about how hard he worked! He was unobtrusive though. Our pictures are amazing and we are so happy to have had Jake document our day. Hire Jake and Jennifer, you definitely won't regret it!

Excellent, Excellent, Excellent is all I can say. Jake and his lovely wife Jennifer are an amazing team and provide an amazing product and service. Responsiveness excellent. I would send an email and get a response within hours. We received our engagement photos back in rapid time and I anticipate our wedding pictures to be the same. We booked Two Birds back in 2009 for a price that I thought was wayyyy too low for the quality of work and since then their prices have been fairly adjusted to suite the quality and good for them because it's worth every penny. We felt like our photographer was not just a vendor, but a friend and that is an excellent aspect to have when you are dealing with such an important service. If you want quality and personal service book them right away. And if distance is a problem don't worry because they travel anywhere. Our wedding was 3 hours away from them and they came to us for virtually free :)

Words cannot describe how happy we are that we went with Two Birds. They actually made us happy that it snowed on our wedding day, the pictures were so beautiful. Even though it snowed, we still spent about 2 hours outside taking what turned out to be amazing shots. We were all freezing so we decided to go to one location with our bridal party, drop them off and continue on our own.

Two Birds definitely goes above and beyond for their brides and grooms. You will not be disappointed. The finished product is amazing.

I only have wonderful things to say about Jake and Jen Moreland, a husband and wife team who own TBP. They are both wonderfully friendly people who are highly professional and beyond talented. Jake does all the photography and Jen does the editing and album design. They were the first vendor we booked after the venue and they have truly been a delight to work with throughout. We took a chance with them, as we had never heard of them, no one on the Knot boards had heard of them, and we didn’t have any recommendations for them; we came across their website, fell in love with their photography style, and then fell in love with them when we met them. Despite the risk, it was probably the best decision we made. Our engagement photos were absolutely beautiful. TBP specializes in a photojournalistic style and Jake loves to play with lighting, backgrounds, poses, and cameras. I spent a great deal of time with Jake on my wedding day and he was absolutely wonderful. During the family and WP portraits, he took command of the situation so that we could quickly (but beautifully) get through all of the different portraits we wanted, and he was never demanding or rude. All of our guests were so complimentary of how efficient and professional he was, yet they could see in the way that he set up and posed the shots that he was also very creative and passionate and that our photos would be beautiful. Our wedding photos are stunning and all of our friends/family are in awe. We purchased the largest package, which included engagement session, 8 hours on the wedding day, our album, 2 parent albums, a canvas, a number of prints of varying sizes, and the digital rights to the photos. I think we got a total steal! Considering all of the items and the quality, I could not have asked for a better value. Book them now – his prices should go up once everyone catches on to the talent that these two possess!
