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.

Wisconsin Fall Engagement Session at Apple Holler – Ashley & Brett

One very sunny day in late October, I met Ashley and Brett at Apple Holler farm in Sturtevant, Wisconsin. Being from Milwaukee, I have passed by this place countless times while commuting to and from Chicago, but never had the opportunity to stop. I know – I can hardly believe it either! Turns out, these […]

Woodland Couples Maternity Session – Erika & Brandon

Erika and Brandon are two of the kindest, sweetest people you will ever meet. I met them through the photography industry last year (photographing another photographer can feel like a lot of pressure!), and was so happy for them when I heard that they were expecting! For their photos, they preferred the woodland/nature feel to […]

South Side Chicago Engagement Session – Brian & Mim

Mim and Brian’s engagement session took place mainly on the south side, and ended at the Museum Campus for skyline photos at sunset. These two have actually been married for a year and half – and just had their second wedding in Thailand last month! They wanted some photos on display at the celebration, so […]

Bristol Renaissance Faire Wedding – Gretchen & Michael

Gretchen and Michael’s Renaissance Faire wedding was more fun than I could have dreamed. I don’t get to photograph a lot of theme weddings, and this one made up for that! When Gretchen was a little girl, she told her mother that she’d get married at the Renaissance Faire. Although she may not remember saying […]

Chicago Sunrise Newlywed Session – Ilnara & Kiko

Ilnara and Kiko’s session is one for the books. The newlyweds, who live in Denver, hopped on a plane to visit Chicago and get some portraits taken together! They got engaged last year in the Windy City and have since moved to Colorado where they tied the knot. Since both of their families live overseas, […]

Waterfall Glen Forest Preserve Engagement Session – Ali & Dan

Ali and Dan’s forest preserve engagement session was a welcome detour from the urban photography I’ve been immersed in lately. Don’t get me wrong – I love city living, and LOVE urban photography! But it never hurts to get back to nature once in a while. These lovebirds had been engaged for only a month […]

Chicago Trash the Dress Session – Laura & Adam

Laura and Adam. Where do I begin? I’ve known these two for several years now, and there has never been a doubt in my mind that they’re absolutely perfect for each other. I mean – you don’t even need to spend five minutes with them together and you’ll just know. They are some of the […]

Summer Wisconsin Wedding at Hubbard Park Lodge – Jane & John

Jane and John’s summer Wisconsin wedding was a lovely gathering of friends and family from different corners of the country. The two call Connecticut home, but because Jane is from – well, Janesville – and much of her family still reside in Wisconsin, they decided to make their wedding a destination Midwest getaway. Hubbard Park […]

Chicago Beach Maternity Session – Angelina

September is here, September is here! As it happens, this month will bring many changes. For some, that means parenthood. Photographing Angelina was an absolute delight! She is so excited for baby Vera – her first! – to arrive later this month. We met for our session at 31st Street Beach a couple hours before […]

Moody Engagement Session at Dusk – Eunice & Kyle

Eunice and Kyle’s Engagement session was magical in ways I don’t think any of us expected. Their connection is undeniable – I know they could make each other laugh for hours! Between a series of mishaps and the sky beginning to drizzle, all signs pointed to “maybe we should reschedule?” but Eunice and Kyle were […]
