Chicago wedding photographer Emma Mullins of Emma Mullins Photography

Hellooo, world!

I’m Emma: Beer nerd, cat-whisperer, Schitt’s Creek-obsessed, Chicago wedding photographer. I’ve been helping couples relive their wedding memories since 2014.

Originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, I currently reside in Chicago with my designer-turned-handyman spouse and our two spunky felines. When I’m not photographing couples in love, I’m either hanging with these three or (dreaming about) traveling someplace new!

A Few of My Favorite Things:
  • Black coffee
  • Buttercream frosting
  • Road trips
  • Watching the sun rise
  • Pretending I sound like Mariah Carey
  • Belgian beer
  • The Green Bay Packers
  • My little fam (Jeremy, Rex and Miike)
  • Halloween (the holiday – not the movie. Okay, the movie’s pretty good too.)
About You

You want stunning, natural wedding photos that look like YOU. You don’t want to feel stiff or look too “posed.” And most importantly, you want to ENJOY your wedding day while we capture all the good stuff! 

Whether you thrive in the spotlight or cringe at the thought of being photographed, we are there to capture your memories. And let’s be honest: your wedding is going to be AWESOME. No matter what goes according to plan or how many things surprise you, at the end of the day you’ll be married to Your Person. And, spoiler alert: that’s what this is all about!

My Approach

My relaxed, documentary approach allows couples to feel totally comfortable in front of the camera (it’s the number one thing mentioned in my Reviews!). Expect a mix of candid moments and contemporary portraiture, with the occasional embarrassing (aka HILARIOUS) dance floor photo. I will be your hype girl during portrait time (seriously!). We’ll get to know each other throughout the process, and it doesn’t stop on wedding day. I want to show up with hugs and handshakes – not as just another vendor.

Spring Milwaukee Engagement in Bay View – Laura & Ben

Last month I got to visit my hometown Milwaukee for Laura and Ben’s Bay View engagement session! These two have been engaged for almost four years (it’s true!)… so it was about time they got in front of my camera together! After cancelling their original 2020 wedding date, I was so happy when they rescheduled […]

Destination Evanston Wedding at Alice Millar Chapel – Allison & Jason

Allison and Jason’s Alice Millar Chapel wedding last fall was one I’ll never forget. Originally scheduled for October 2020, these two made the difficult decision to postpone their festivities until the following year. However, after spending a few minutes with Allison, I learned that they were legally married in Florida on their original date! I […]

Chicago Brewery Engagement in the Rain – Claire & Andrew

I’m so happy I got to hang out with Claire and Andrew last month! These two were truly a treat in front of the camera, and didn’t even flinch when rain was in the forecast. And yes, it did rain! Even though most couples don’t wish for rain in their wedding or engagement photos, this […]

Erica & Sam’s September Loft Lucia Wedding

It’s hard to believe, but Erica and Sam’s intimate Loft Lucia wedding last year was not how they’d originally envisioned their wedding day. When I first heard from these two, they told me of their summer engagement at home, their “pride and joy” Bernese Mountain Dog Olaf, and destination wedding plans in Italy. At that […]

Romantic Chicago Engagement Session at Night – Juliette & Matt

Juliette and Matt’s romantic Chicago engagement session last summer was one for the books! When I first heard from these two, they were recently engaged and wanted to celebrate with photos in our great city at night. Of course, I was on board! Matt and Juliette had been together for over a decade, and were […]

Michael & Nick’s Fashionable Fall Wedding at The Dalcy

Last fall, I was honored to capture Nick and Michael’s joyful wedding day at The Dalcy! This was my first wedding at the gorgeous West Loop venue, and believe me, it did not disappoint. In fact, Michael is on staff at The Dalcy and Aba – which made this day extra special!! Of course, the […]

Marie & Jay’s Summer Wedding at Milwaukee War Memorial Center

Marie & Jay’s Milwaukee War Memorial Center wedding last summer was one I’ll never forget! For starters, they were already married (surprise!)… which made finally getting to celebrate even more special. This happened to be my first hometown wedding since 2019, so I was extra pumped! I met Marie and Jay (aka John) at their […]

Funky Fall Wedding at Chevy Chase Country Club – Matt & Carly

Last November, Carly and Matt tied the knot at Chevy Chase Country Club – and it was one of our most memorable weddings of 2021. From our very first conversation, I knew their wedding was going to be a blast! Their love story began with Tinder swipes, waiting outside a train station in frigid weather, […]

Joyful September Wedding at Rockwell on the River – Lindsey & Griffin

Lindsey & Griffin’s joyful Rockwell on the River wedding was romantic, dreamy, and bursting with love! Associate María and Jeremy got to spend the day with these two, starting at The Hotel at Midtown with a quick stop at Lincoln Park for the skyline view. I was lucky enough to photograph Lindsey and Griffin here […]

Brigette & Michael’s Destination Chicago Wedding at Cafe Brauer

Last September, I had the pleasure of photographing Brigette and Michael’s Cafe Brauer wedding in Chicago. You may remember these two from their downtown summer engagement session in 2020! Fun fact: When they originally booked their venue, Brigette and Michael lived within walking distance. But, then there was a pandemic, and – things changed a […]
