Getting married?



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.

Erin & Evan’s Downtown Microwedding at Firehouse Chicago

Erin and Evan’s September Microwedding at Firehouse Chicago was an intimate family affair. After beginning to plan a much larger celebration for 2021, these two decided to tie the knot this year instead! I’m so happy they did!!

Their day started at Thompson Chicago in the Gold Coast, one of my favorite hotels in the city. Thanks to Evan’s mother, Miriam, there was no shortage of gorgeous florals! Lucky Evan got to pick from several groom boutonnières that she had created, it was so sweet! After their first look in the Penthouse Suite, I got these two all to myself for some classic downtown portraits. I was especially excited to stop at the Art Institute of Chicago for a few!

Of course, no wedding day goes exactly as expected, and this was no exception. As soon as we were ready to head to the north side, the rain began to fall. But wait – it gets better! Instead of the outdoor garden ceremony they had planned, Erin and Evan exchanged vows inside the firehouse surrounded by candlelight and their closest family. Their senior pup Huey even made a mid-ceremony cameo appearance! The evening was cozy, intimate, and absolutely perfect 🙂

Erin and Evan: Thanks again for having me in September!! Wishing you the very best in your future together.
