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:
Singing loudly to the radio while driving
The Green Bay Packers
My little fam (Jeremy, Rex and Miike)
Re-watching episodes of Schitt’s Creek
Halloween (the holiday – not the movie. Okay, the movie’s pretty good too.)
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.

Michelle & Kevin’s Colorful Fall Chicago Engagement Session
Associate Sandy had a blast with Michelle and Kevin at their fall Chicago engagement session last month! These two wanted to incorporate Chicago’s gorgeous fall foliage into their session, and the photos do not disappoint. There is always a prime week for fall colors in the city, and I think we just happened to pick the perfect day 🙂
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Lincoln Park is a choice location for fall Chicago engagement photos. Can you guess why?! You get both nature AND a killer skyline view… not to mention it’s so close to the lake! Looks like Kevin and Michelle had no problem keeping each other warm with that cool lakefront breeze. What a perfect way to spend a fall evening in the city!
Michelle and Kevin: You two are absolutely adorable together! We can’t wait for your July wedding next year!!
