Emma Mullins Photography Chicago wedding photographer

Hellooo, world!

I’m Emma: documenter, world traveler, cat-whisperer, and lover of all things beer and coffee. I’ve been documenting life through photographs for as long as I can remember. These days, you’ll find me photographing anything that tells a good story.

My favorite thing about working with couples is learning THEIR story! I meet people from all walks of life who have fallen in love, some who have gone to great lengths (and traveled great distances) for each other. I want to photograph you on your wedding day, and I want you to relive those moments every time you look at your images. This is your LIFE (!), and I strive to capture it as is – perfections, imperfections, and all.

Chicago has been my home since 2007, but in my heart I’m a true Wisconsin girl. I share a live/work studio in the Carroll Arts District with my designer-turned-handyman spouse and our two spunky felines, Rex and Miike.

Emma Mullins Photography is now booking weddings throughout the Chicago and Milwaukee areas and also worldwide. I get most excited about elopements, destination weddings, and unique cultural traditions. Things on my current Wish List include photographing a surprise wedding and a Southeast Asian wedding! If you are planning either I would love to chat!

Emma Mullins Photography is also regularly available for portrait sessions, events, and other projects.

Destination Newlywed Session at Isla Mujeres – Lalainia & Justin

Lani and Justin’s destination newlywed session took place the day after their wedding in Cancún, Mexico. Their wedding day was a giant celebration, and I promise I’ll share it soon!

Urban Milwaukee Engagement Session – Lizzie & Lucas

Lizzie and Lucas have lived in Chicago together for several years, but their story began in (drumroll, please…) Milwaukee! Of course, we thought – what better place to have their engagement session?

Surprise Proposal at The Robey Chicago – Isaac & Amy

Isaac first contacted me about a month ago, knowing a few things for certain: he was going to ask Amy to marry him, he wanted his surprise proposal documented, and she couldn’t suspect it no matter what! He decided that The Robey Chicago was the perfect spot – with their incredible rooftop view of the […]

Intimate Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool Wedding – Liz & Jen

Liz and Jen’s Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool wedding ceremony was everything they wanted it to be: intimate, peaceful, and surrounded by loved ones. If you’re into nature, this is the perfect spot for a romantic ceremony! They did all of the planning themselves, and everything came together seamlessly. I met them at Hotel Lincoln (one […]

Hip Logan Square Wedding and Rock Show – Kelly & Matt

When I first met Kelly and Matt, it was clear we were going to get along. We talked about movies, our obsessions with our own weird/adorable pets (theirs: Greyhounds, mine: cats), and even our similar views on wedding planning. Their rainy engagement session back in May was a blast, and really showed how much they […]
