Emma Mullins Photography

Hellooo!! I’m Emma, a documentary wedding photographer based in Chicago. I have a love for all things non-traditional, and can’t wait to hear how your wedding day is unique to you! My creativity is fueled by new locations, new personalities, and anything with lots of color. I specialize in helping my couples feel completely comfortable in front of the lens so that your wedding photos look like YOU!

My photojournalistic approach allows me to capture the story of your day however it unfolds. I want you to enjoy your wedding to its fullest extent! Expect more directing and less posing, so you can really focus on what matters (each other, duh!). I’m an expert at capturing behind-the-scenes goodness and might as well be known for my unobtrusive ninja skills 🙂

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

I’m about as much a fan of offbeat, quirky details as you’ll get. Not every couple wants a traditional wedding, and that should be embraced! Feel like dressing up as comic-book characters for your reception? Awesome! Want to get married on stage at your favorite concert venue? Let’s do it!! Can your pet iguana be the ring bearer? YES please… There really are endless possibilities for your wedding day — after all, it is YOUR wedding.

I’m always happy to stay in touch throughout the planning process, whether you’re looking for vendor recommendations, help with your timeline, or a photographer’s advice on what to wear. Let’s make your wedding day everything you envision it to be!!

"Not only was Emma incredibly pleasant and easy to work with, she was also very professional. We had a small elopement on a weekday, and she approached it as seriously as if it were a big Saturday night affair. Her pictures were GORGEOUS, and she took care to take documenting shots of the surroundings and the little details, which is not something I would have thought of. She is just simply the best!" – Anne E.
