Photo Booth

Chicago open air Photo Booth by Emma Mullins Photography featured at Wildman BT

Best. Party. EVER!

Adding the Photo Booth to your event is ALWAYS a good idea! This iPad operated, “open-air” booth is a sleek design and will fit in most event spaces. The app offers several layout options (including GIFs!) and the ability to text, email and share your photos on social media. Want a unique party favor for you and your guests to take home after the party? A printer is available as well!

Choose between a gold or silver backdrop, or one of our custom flower walls! Or – capture the ambiance of your event by going backdrop-free! Have your own backdrop idea in mind? Bring it along, we’ll set it up for you. Our on-site attendant will assist guests when needed, and keep tabs on any props you may bring.

The photo booth was such a hit with our guests. The photo quality is so good and we cherish these prints!

Backdrops

Backdrop options include gold or silver sequin, and three custom-made flower walls! Flower wall backdrops are handmade with silk flowers and boxwood greenery, and available for a $200 upgrade fee. Sequin backdrops are included with every photo booth rental.

Have a custom backdrop with your logo or wedding date on it? Or a banner you want to hang across the curtain? Bring it! We will gladly set up your custom backdrop for you.

Does your venue have a gorgeous wall or space that would work as a booth setup? Not crazy about backdrops in general? Skip it! Going backdrop-free allows for more spontaneous photos, and can capture more of the ambiance of your event.

Happy Customers

The photo booth was so fun and easy to use, and was a huge hit with our guests! It gave the young kids something fun to do, and also provided plenty of amusement for those watching our parents and their friends get goofy! We originally were not planning on having a photobooth and we are so incredibly glad Emma changed our minds, it was a huge success! I would absolutely recommend it to anyone planning an event!

-Holly E.

This was an awesome experience and really added to the party! Photo booths are always a fun addition to any event and this one was better than your average photo booth. No actual booth to cram into so we could easily fit plenty of people, plus we could see and personally control the photo sessions ourselves so we can redo the pictures if we didn’t like them. This photo booth also gives the option of combining the photos into a GIF! This option made the photo booth experience that much more fun and creative!!

-Kumari B.

This photo booth is FUN! It got our friends and family that had never met before in photos together. The lighting is very flattering and it was so nice to have a big batch of photos to take home at the end of the night.

About

Chicago wedding photographer Emma Mullins of Emma Mullins Photography

Hellooo, world!

I’m Emma (She/Her): Beer nerd, cat-whisperer, Schitt’s Creek-obsessed Chicago wedding photographer. I’ve been helping couples relive their wedding memories since 2014, and wouldn’t have it any other way!

Originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, I currently reside in Chicago with my designer-turned-handyman partner and our two spunky felines. When I’m not photographing couples in love, I’m either hanging with these three, managing our West Town studio space, or 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, Miike and Vince)
  • Halloween (the holiday – not the movie. Okay, the movie’s pretty good too.)
About You

You want stunning, true-to-life wedding photos that look and feel 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 day 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.

Travel

Traveling is my thing.

I don’t know what I would do with myself if I couldn’t explore new places. After a three-year hiatus, my free time is constantly filled with travel dates! Not only does traveling fuel my creativity, it encourages me to learn and grow as a citizen of this planet.

So far I have photographed weddings throughout the Midwest, Mexico, Hawaii, Italy, Utah, New York City, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. But don’t worry: the list is growing! If you’re dreaming of a destination wedding, get in touch ASAP. Destination wedding coverage begins at $9500 including two photographers, travel and accommodations. Custom pricing available for bucket list locations (just ask!).
