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.

Dreamy South Loop Engagement with Skyline and Puppy – Jessika & Matthew

Jessika and Matthew’s spring South Loop engagement session was a dream! These two were such a treat to have in front of my camera… not to mention I made a new puppy friend, Nala! This sweet lady has the brightest eyes and an adorable puppy-dog face, Jess and Matt are absolutely smitten with her. I’m so happy she could join us! (Shout out to the friends who helped out with Nala during this session!)

I met these three at their South Loop home for an evening stroll through the neighborhood. To say Nala was excited would be an understatement! When we came to the Agora installation on Roosevelt Road (you know, those tall leg statue things?), the sun was hitting it just right and we had to stop! Matt and Jess walked right into a perfect patch of light and shared a kiss, with no prompt or direction from me at all. It was as if they read my mind! After that, I knew this session was going to be good!!

We strolled toward the lakefront for photos with Nala at the Museum Campus. This was their happy place – and Nala’s home turf! After a few family photos, I got Jessika and Matthew all to myself. Even though it was a brisk May evening, these two had no problem keeping each other warm. The upside of chilly weather: we were lucky enough to have the iconic skyline view ALL to ourselves!!! This never happens in Chicago… and believe me, we made the most of it 🙂

Jessika and Matthew: I had so much fun at our session, thanks again for having me! Super excited for your wedding day in September!!
