Hello, engaged person! I’m Emma, a documentary wedding photographer based in Chicago. My creativity is fueled by new locations, new personalities, and anything with lots of color.

I make it a priority to capture the story of your day however it unfolds. Whether you’ve been planning for weeks or many months, you deserve to enjoy your wedding day to its fullest extent! Expect more directing and less posing, so you can really focus on what matters (each other, duh!).

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

Being photographed (a LOT) is not something most people are used to. My hands-off, “ninja-like” approach allows couples to feel totally comfortable in front of the camera (it's the number one thing mentioned in my reviews!). The goal is to capture your vibe, your people, and your love in a way that looks and feels true to life.

As of Fall 2019, Emma Mullins Photography now offers Videography services! Additional items include engagement session, custom album design, and a seriously fun photo booth 🙂

Emma Mullins Photography is available throughout the Chicago and Milwaukee areas and beyond. Inquire through my web site for pricing and availability.

"Emma was perfect for us. My partner and I were on the fence about having a photographer at all and chose Emma because she was laidback, lower in price, and we liked her work. In particular she was so patient with our ambivalence about being photographed and delightfully encouraged us to enjoy the process. The photos came out gorgeous and exactly how we had hoped (not staged, mostly silly and candid). If you are looking for a photographer who will listen to you, be patient with you and your family, and respond graciously and promptly to questions and scheduled, Emma is wonderful. We also found her to be very queer-friendly and thoughtful around all things related to that for us and our guests. All the stars." – Erin
