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 – not as just another vendor.

Joe’s Live Rosemont Wedding – Tammi & Mike

Hello, friends! It’s been a while since I featured a wedding on the Blog, and I’ve got SO MANY to share!! Today I’m showcasing Tammi and Mike’s Joe’s Live Rosemont wedding from May. I got to kick off my spring season with these two, and it couldn’t have been a more memorable day!

Tammi found me through a past bride (remember Brittany & Dan?), and I was so excited to hear about the wedding she and Mike were planning. These two have been together for 19 years… yes, you read that right! Not only have they been committed for almost two decades, they share two adorable sons together. Even though their wedding day was far from the beginning of their love story, it was much anticipated by all 🙂

I met these two at Aloft hotel, just a short walk away from their venue. Mike and the boys got ready next door to Tammi before their emotional first look outside of Joe’s. Honestly, this might have been my favorite part of the entire day! After that, the countdown was ON. Mike and Tammi tied the knot on stage surrounded by loved ones, and officiated by a dear friend. Their ceremony was filled with personal touches, including Saturday Night Live exit music and their son holding the rings. Tammi even made her own wedding cake from scratch!

My favorite thing about Tammi and Mike is their totally relaxed, go-with-the flow attitude. These two were up for anything, and their wedding day was a blast because of it! I mean, they entered their reception to the National Lampoon’s cut of Holiday Road… if that doesn’t tell you how awesome this party was, I don’t know what will! The newlyweds were all smiles all day, and their wedding was an absolute pleasure to capture.

Tammi and Mike: Thank you again for having me in May!!! I had so much fun with you two and your families, wishing you all the best in the world!
