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.

Formal Chicago Engagement Session with Pup – Maddy & Max

At the end of April, I finally had a chance to hang out with Maddy and Max! I met these two at their downtown home for formal Chicago engagement photos with their pup, Frank 🙂 We went for a stroll around some favorite spots in their neighborhood – including the tulip garden outside their building! Max and Maddy looked absolutely stunning, not to mention they were ALL smiles. Frank couldn’t keep his paws off of them!

When it was time to say goodbye to Frank, the three of us walked to Michigan Avenue for some iconic Chicago engagement photos. Downtown was especially beautiful this evening with the spring blooms and golden light! Our timing could not have been more perfect. We talked about wedding plans, their Grand Canyon engagement, and all exciting things to come. These two were a blast to spend the evening with – and a treat to have in front of my lens! I don’t think I could pick a favorite photo from our session if I tried!

The weather began to change, which was our cue to head toward the lakefront. We made it to North Avenue Beach just in time for champagne with the skyline before a sudden Chicago downpour! Maddy and Max were smart to stay dry… but I was stranded with my cameras until the rain let up. When it did, guess what appeared in the sky?! A colorful RAINBOW over Lake Michigan and our beautiful city. If that’s not the sign of a fabulous session, I don’t know what is!

Maddy and Max: I loved everything about your formal Chicago engagement session! Can’t wait for you to tie the knot in December!!!
