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

Experience

We’re getting married!!! And we want awesome photos! BUT we’ve never done this before… What should we expect?

I’m so happy you asked! 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 or Zoom. We’ll talk about our fur babies, your favorite new quarantine recipe, and Wedding Stuff, too! Let’s name all the ways your day is going to be AWESOME.
  3. You receive a custom photography proposal based on what’s most important to you. Once you’re ready to book, 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 receive 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!
