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

Cannot rave enough! We worked with Jake for our engagement shoot and our wedding. He was everything you want in a photographer- professional, nice, accommodating, and TALENTED! He was a fly on the wall, not at all distracting, during the ceremony, while still managing to perfectly frame a shot for every meaningful moment. When the schedule was continually changing (hair & makeup ran long, weren't sure if it was going to rain, left flowers at the hotel, lunch ran long), Jake went with the flow. He was resourceful in his use of time and space to make sure we got all the shots we wanted despite the scheduling issues, even staying late at the reception to ensure he completed the shot list. And, of course, the photos are GORGEOUS! Our friends and family cannot stop talking about how great the photos are and asking "WHERE did you FIND your photographer?!? He's amazing!"

Two Birds were a complete joy to work with. Jake and Jenn are so laid back just in the way you'd want your wedding photographers to be. They blended in seamless throughout the day but Jake still made sure he got all of the important shots. Our wedding happened to be on the hottest day of the year and after first stepping outside that day, we knew we couldn't keep our bridal party of 25 in direct sunlight all day. Jake changed our entire day of photo plan on the spot to keep our bridal party in the shade as much as possible and the photos are INCREDIBLE. I have had so many people tell me our photos were the best wedding photos they've ever seen. They were a complete joy to work with on the day of and we can't thank them enough! We'd recommend them to anyone!

I'm writing this review about our photographers before we even have our wedding pictures back.

The first thing that we LOVED about Two Birds was obviously their work. It speaks for itself. We wanted photographers who captured more candid moments vs. the "Hey everyone, stop and look over here and say Cheese!" photographers. Two Birds was perfect.

The second thing that we loved? The fact that (if you book 2 photographers) it's this incredible Husband + Wife Duo team!!! They are the CUTEST things ever and work SO well together. I don't know if that has anything to do with why they are so amazing, but keep up the good work if it does!

I first had a conversation with Jake over the phone and he answered all of my questions (and there were a lot of them). He wasn't annoyed with how many times I asked him about certain things, he really listened to what I was saying. My husband and I then met with him in person just so we could go over everything more in detail. And he would email me multiple times just to make sure he had all the information he needed. He was amazing!

We DID book two photographers, so we DID get the amazing Husband + Wife Duo team (and if you're going back and forth on whether or not you should get 2 photographers-DO it. It's worth the extra money). Flowers wilt and die, pictures last a lifetime.

I follow Two Birds on Instagram and Facebook and they put out little teasers of our wedding pictures-and judging just by the few pictures I've seen...I'm DYING inside to see the rest.

They are just amazing and really make you feel comfortable when they're shooting you. I thought it would be awkward having someone taking pictures of me all day, but you honestly don't even realize they're there.

We could NOT BE HAPPIER with choosing them as our photographers-and we will probably use them again for something in the future! :-)

I couldn't agree with the other reviewers more - Jake was fantastic and we are so happy we hired Two Birds Photography! Jake was so professional, fun, and pleasant to work with and we absolutely loved how he caught the little moments. We also received our photos before we even got back from our honeymoon which was fantastic! All in all, awesome experience and awesome photographers. Would highly recommend.

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.
