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.

Stunning Industrial Loft Wedding at ARIA Minneapolis – Dana & Noah

This summer I had the opportunity to photograph Dana & Noah’s ARIA Minneapolis wedding, and it was an absolute dream. Having planned their entire wedding while living in London, they tied the knot only weeks after returning home to Minneapolis. These two were so excited to marry each other – and it showed!

Dana and Noah’s first look took place in their own backyard overlooking the Minneapolis skyline. They read personal vows to each other, and then we headed for portraits at some iconic downtown locations. They actually met years ago in San Francisco, and made a point to include aspects of their international love story throughout the day. Dana and Noah are so clearly in love – photographing them was a breeze 🙂

A friend officiated their multi-faith ceremony and it was the perfect, personal touch. ARIA is one of the most unique venues I’ve ever photographed, but more importantly, the vendors did such an incredible job! From the live band to the caterer to the stunning floral installation, the day couldn’t have been more beautiful. Shout out to Jeremy for 2nd shooting this with me and capturing some of my favorite shots of the day!

Dana and Noah: Thank you again for having me! I had a blast exploring Minneapolis and being part of this day. CONGRATS to you both!!
