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.

Summer Humboldt Park Engagement Session – Angie & Mike

Earlier this month, I got to spend the evening with Angie and Mike for their dreamy Humboldt Park engagement session. There’s no denying these two are adorable together… this session was such a breeze! I’ve known Angie for years and was beyond thrilled when she and Mike became engaged last December. So much happiness here, it’s contagious 🙂

We started our session in the Formal Garden, one of my favorite spots in the park! There’s no shortage of photo opportunities here, especially in the summer. From the greenery to the lagoons, and the abundance of wildflowers, I could honestly spend an entire day here. We strolled through it all! It was great to catch up (and finally hear their engagement story in person)!

Angie and Mike: Thanks again for having me capture these moments for you! I have no doubt your wedding day is going to be awesome when the time comes! CONGRATS again!!
