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.

West Loop Engagement Session and Mural Tour – Alex & Jack

Last month I had the pleasure of hanging out with Alex and Jack for their colorful West Loop engagement session. These two have been together for over a decade, and originally planned to tie the knot in 2020. Needless to say, it was exciting to finally meet in person! In fact, with everything that’s changed over the past year, we found out that we’re neighbors!! How cool is that?!

I met Alex and Jack at their new home in West Town, where I was also introduced to their (super adorable) pup, Bruno 🙂 Seriously, I am lucking out with all the new pups this year, I love it!! We hung out in their living room, on the rooftop, and even took Bruno for a stroll around the neighborhood. When the sun began to set, Jack, Alex and I headed west near City Hall where they’ll marry next month. These two had every mural memorized, and stories of how they spent their quarantine days taking walks with Bruno. I’ve had many West Loop engagement sessions, but none have been as personalized as this! It’s clear this part of the city is dear to their hearts.

Alex and Jack: Thanks again for having me in June, and WELCOME to the neighborhood! Can’t wait for you to finally tie the knot next month!!
