About

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 (elbow bumps?) – not as just another vendor.

Alison & Kevin’s Romantic Downtown Spring Engagement Session

Alison and Kevin’s downtown spring engagement session was romantic, dreamy, and most of all: FUN!! These two were a breeze to have in front of my camera, and we got to visit some favorite Chicago photo locations. Spring came early this year (well, early for Chicago, that is!)… and I can not get enough of these April blooms! So happy we had a chance to play on the Riverwalk before heading to the lakefront.

When I first starting talking with Alison, we knew the skyline view at Museum Campus was a must for their engagement photos. After years of long distance and multiple cities, these two were happy to finally call Chicago home. She and Kevin live in the South Loop and walk to the lakefront regularly, so naturally this was the perfect place to be for sunset! We were lucky to get a pop of sunshine just in time for golden hour – some of my favorite photos from their session. Not to mention: these two mastered every dip, lift, and dancing photo! I was thoroughly impressed, only to find out that it was not their first time making those moves 🙂

Alison and Kevin: Thank you again for having us last month!! You two were a joy to photograph and I wish you nothing but happiness in your future together.
