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.

Videography

Emma and her team captured all of the beautiful moments that we missed on our wedding day… The pictures are stunning and the video perfectly sums us up as a couple.

Get ready for the FULL EXPERIENCE.

YES, quality wedding photos are important. You’ll hear it time and again: Once the cake is eaten, the flowers are wilted, and the DJ plays “Purple Rain” (okay, it’s my favorite Last Call song…), all you’ll have left are your photos. While what they say is true, this IS 2020! Video is just as important.

Emma Mullins Photography has partnered with two incredibly talented filmmakers who are EXCITED to capture your wedding-day memories! We work seamlessly as a team to make sure the day runs smoothly and no detail is left out. Meet Amy Lynn and Carlos!

Videographer Amy Lynn for Emma Mullins Photography

Amy Lynn

Hi, I’m Amy Lynn! After moving to Chicago three years ago, I’ve discovered a passion for documenting real­-life love stories. I know it’s cheesy, but I love LOVE! True story: I’ve seen Titanic 200 times.

Storytelling has always been at the heart of my work. I’ve had the opportunity to capture over 50 weddings in my career, and the list is growing! I want you to re-experience your wedding day each time you watch your video, and your children and your children’s children, too. Can’t wait to capture more love stories with EMP this season!

Videographer Carlos for Emma Mullins Photography

Carlos

Hi, I’m Carlos! I’ve been creating wedding films for couples for five years now, and truly enjoy capturing the moments of every wedding day. My background is in creative portraiture and product photography. I live in Chicago’s Avondale neighborhood with my girlfriend and two cats. I can’t wait to tell your wedding story on film!

Our videographers adopt the same documentary approach, allowing you to stay in the moment and enjoy your day. So clink your glasses, steal a kiss, and rest assured it’s being captured by a talented team here to serve YOU.

Booking both Photography and Videography services with us guarantees a matching aesthetic, and not to mention… guaranteed FUN! We love what we do, and even better when we get to do it together. As with our Photography Collections, Video Packages are fully customizable.

Video Love

During our wedding day, we had photography services with Emma and videography services with Carlos. Their team helped us feel excited and confident throughout the whole wedding day. Emma’s positivity and energy helped us have SO much fun during our photo sessions. Carlos was able to creatively capture video from the full day and we were so impressed by the sound and visual quality of the videos. Emma captured the colors, joy and essence of the day in her photos. Looking back at the photos and videos brings us and our families so much joy.

The pictures and video….Oh my goodness, these are flawless. Emma and her team captured all of the beautiful moments that we missed on our wedding day. The attention to detail that they put in everything is evident. The pictures are stunning and the video perfectly sums us up as a couple. We could not have asked for a better team to help capture all of the moments of our wedding day.

– Alex G.

I’m so glad we had Emma and her team creating our wedding video. They were able to use elements of the day like behind-the-scenes footage, gorgeous music, and even the audio of our ceremony reader(!) to create the most magical way to revisit the day over and over. I had no idea I could be brought to tears this many times upon re-watching. Everyone we show it to is always blown away by how much it made them feel like they were there with us again. Thank you so much for giving us this amazing keepsake!
