About

Documentary wedding photographer Emma of Emma Mullins Photography in Chicago, Illinois

Hellooo, world!

I’m Emma: beer nerd, cat-whisperer, and documentary 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 traveling some place new!

A Few of My Favorite Things:
  • Black coffee
  • Road trips
  • 90’s R&B
  • Belgian beer
  • My little fam (Jeremy, Rex and Miike)
  • Watching the sun rise
  • The Green Bay Packers
  • Johnny + Moira + David + Alexis
  • Halloween (the holiday – not the movie. Okay, the movie’s pretty good too.)
My Approach

My favorite thing about working with couples is learning THEIR story. It’s always exciting to learn how two people met… and then decided to spend the rest of their lives together! 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.

If you’re looking for stiff, unnatural posing, I’m not your girl. Expect a mix of candid moments and contemporary portraiture while still being able to enjoy time with your guests. My approach allows couples to feel totally comfortable in front of the camera (it’s the number one thing mentioned in my Reviews!).

Maybe you’re planning the wedding of your dreams, or maybe you cringe at the thought of being center of attention. Either way, your wedding day represents YOU and the awesome, ridiculous, beautiful, unique, sometimes-messy-but-oh-so-worth-it love you share together. Your photos should be no exception.

Emma Mullins Photography embraces diversity and inclusivity. We are LGBTQ+ friendly and happy to serve humans of every background, gender and identity.

Experience

We’ve never done this before! What should we expect?

I’m so happy you asked! In a nutshell, the process looks something like this:

  1. You INQUIRE. Tell me everything! I’ll get back to you within 24 hours. 
  2. We connect over the phone, Skype, or meet in person (virtual meetings only in a COVID-19 world, of course!).
  3. You’ll receive a custom proposal based on what’s most important to you. I take a signed contract and 50% retainer fee to reserve your date.
  4. You’re booked!! We’ll keep in touch during the months before your wedding to schedule your engagement session, final consult, and/or if you have a really cute cat gif to share…
  1. You GET MARRIED. We capture it all. Everybody celebrates.
  2. Enjoy sneak peeks on social media and your final gallery sooner than expected. Sit back, relax, and relive it all over again.

Cool! But… what about the actual wedding day? What’s that like?

SUPER fun – see for yourself! This is what it’s like behind the scenes…

Check back often, more videos coming soon!
