Getting married?



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.

Wicker Park Engagement and First Date Nostalgia – Kaitlyn & John

Kaitlyn and John’s Wicker Park engagement session was dreamy, eventful, and nostalgic, to say the least! Ever since our first conversation, we had a pretty solid game plan for what the evening would entail. These two met while playing softball in Lincoln Park, and their first date was soon to follow. The date sounded so awesome, we had to recreate it for engagement photos!

Kaitlyn’s words:

“It was the best first date ever- beer, the 606, a funky used bookstore, a park, and tacos (and flowed together beautifully for all the excitement!). It was the best night of my life- that is until the night he proposed!”

We started our session at the infamous Robin Williams mural outside of Concord Music Hall on Milwaukee Avenue. Kaitlyn and John actually lived near this mural while it was being painted – and I’m so excited they wanted photos here! Did you know Robin Williams was from Chicago?! I had no idea… gonna blame that one on my Wisconsin heritage. Hah!

After some time with the Genie, we headed over to Wicker Park for photos with the fountain and spring tulips (Kaitlyn’s fave!). We strolled over to Big Star for margaritas and their adorable heart wall. Shout out to the staff for letting us take a few photos on the patio! Our next stop was Myopic, of course – is there another “funky used bookstore” in Wicker Park? – and then headed to the 606 just in time for sunset 🙂 Kaitlyn and John were so adorable together, they even got applause from random passersby on the street! Now THAT is how you know you rocked your engagement session!!

Kaitlyn and John: I had so much fun at your Wicker Park engagement session! Can’t wait for wedding day this fall!
