I’ve rewritten the first sentence of this review a couple of times now because my words kept failing me. That said, I’ll keep it simple … Emma was our dream photographer. I can’t believe how freaking lucky we got in finding her. I hired Emma to photograph my proposal to my girlfriend and not only did she capture the moment beautifully, but she made us both feel incredibly comfortable. In sharing the final gallery with family and friends, I’ve had multiple people say they were brought to tears. Great experience, person and result. We’d highly recommend her for any kind of shoot.
The couples photo shoot I experienced with Emma Mullins was how every awkward person hopes their session will turn out.
This being our first photo shoot together, my boyfriend Jeff and I were pretty nervous and had no idea what to expect. We just hoped our initial awkwardness wouldn’t translate into the photographs. As soon as we met up with Emma at a local coffee shop, all those worries vanished. She had all these brilliant ideas lined up which was great because I had no clue where to start!
Her enthusiasm and encouragement helped us relax in front of the camera and just made everything feel natural. It’s this innate talent she has….to not only help you achieve the look you’re going for but to do so in such a way that makes you feel as though you’ve been in front of the camera your whole life.
I honestly couldn’t recommend her more.
Emma did our engagement and wedding photos and she was AMAZING! She not only took beautiful pictures but she also made us feel comfortable while doing it. She was in constant contact with us leading up to the wedding and even scheduled meetings at our venues to make sure the lighting was up to par. She was professional and had patience during those crazy family photos. We absolutely love Emma and will be recommending her and will be using her again!!
Emma was a wonderful asset to our wedding day! She scheduled multiple meetings with us before our wedding for planning purposes and was able to utilize her expertise and previous experience to make suggestions about things we never would have considered (having not been the main attraction in a wedding before). We had an international destination wedding (Cozumel, Mexico) and Emma was extremely flexible in terms of both the planning phase and her on-site work. Whenever we questioned Emma about any of her services, she gave us answers that set our expectations high, and time after time she exceeded those expectations.
Emma kept a professional demeanor throughout our entire time in Mexico while being able to seamlessly interact with our guests. We enjoyed her company as much as our other guests – it was as if we had a friend who happened to also be a phenomenal photographer. That being said, it wasn’t until we received the finished photos that we completely understood the scope of Emma’s talent. She truly was able to capture the beauty of our day.
Emma Mullins – I can not say enough about her as an individual and her work. My fiancé proposed to me in August, 2016 and he reached out to Emma to help capture our very special and intimate moment. From the very beginning of the process until the very end, Emma went above and beyond to make our day perfect. My fiancé and her shared emails discussing the location and day of the proposal, and on the day of, I never even saw her! She was so stealth and blended in with the surroundings so well that I never even noticed her. She captured all our candid moments of when he proposed and my reaction! I am so grateful for her because I still go on to our album and re-live that very important day of my life.
Emma’s work speaks for itself, she captures absolutely stunning shots. Working with her was so easy as well… I remember feeling so giddy the day of and found her presence so calming during our shoot post proposal. She is a gem to work with and does captivating photography! Highly recommend choosing Emma Mullins Photography!
I found Emma on Instagram when I was looking for a photographer for our elopement. Me and my husband travelled from London to Chicago to get married. It was only the two of us, so having some photos to share with family when we got back was really important. We aren’t really the traditional wedding type, and we wanted some natural, fun photos: Emma was great and worked to exactly what we wanted. As we didn’t know Chicago at all, Emma even planned a route around the city to take some really cool elopement shots. Emma was an absolute delight to spend the day with and we’re so thrilled with how the pictures turned out.
Emma was amazing! She was so much fun to work with that my boyfriend and I forgot we were in front of a camera. She was able to guide us without making us feel self-conscious. The photos she took were so natural and flattering, and really captured the love between him and I. Emma’s positive attitude, sweet demeanor, professionalism, and ability to compose gorgeous pictures really made our photo shoot special. I am so incredibly happy about the pictures she took and would recommend her for any type of photography. I will definitely use her again!
