    Assertive photographer. Amazing photos.

    Emma was incredible. The photos are incredible. We can't thank her enough. We hired Emma for our engagement photos. I was really nervous and feeling self-conscious. Emma was able to make me feel so comfortable and I was so happy with how the photos turned out. We of course hired her for our wedding. We have been in a lot of weddings, and so has our wedding party, and everyone raved at how organized, efficient, and direct Emma was. We took photos at our favorite record shop -- a place I'm usually intimidated to go into as a customer, let alone a bride in a big dress -- but Emma was assertive and kind and we got some of the most amazing photos! Emma also literally stopped traffic on Damen Ave to get incredible wedding party shots of us walking down the street. It is hard to wrangle a wedding party, extended family, and tipsy guests, but Emma kept all the photos going and got all of our requests (as well as all of my mom's extended list of requests). Timelines and schedules change, but Emma was able to make changes on the fly and be creative in the space. Emma did such an amazing job at capturing special moments, including the little ones that others may not have noticed. Also, the photo "booth" was such a hit with our guests. The photo quality is so good and we cherish these prints! I know I am using a lot of superlatives and exclamation points, but this is all authentic. Emma made what could have been an extremely stressful day and night, flow so smoothly. And now we have the pictures to treasure and excellent gifts for family and friends.

    An Incredible Experience From Start to Finish

    I am a huge believer that if there is anything that you should invest in with regard to your wedding, it is the photographer. The day will pass in the blink of an eye and all that you will have are memories and pictures. I feel so lucky that we had Emma (and her second shooter, Jeremy) to take ours. Not only are our photos such a beautiful, candid, vibrant reminder of our day, but Emma and Jeremy were a joy to have with us at the wedding. They made every second of the day feel more joyful and relaxed. Staged photos can be a chore but they were speedy and fun with Emma in charge. She was also so careful to make sure that we got all of the shots that we hoped for, as well as some very creative ones as awesome ideas came to her. Do yourself a favor and hire Emma MullIns Photography for your wedding. You won鈥檛 find a better person to capture your day.

    No question - Hire Emma!

    Hands down our favorite vendor and the best decision we made on our wedding was hiring Emma! From our initial reach out to even after delivering our final photos, Emma has been a delight to communicate and work with. She brought energy to our wedding day and helped us feel comfortable in front of the camera. She clearly has the experience and professionalism, but she also brings a comfort and kind hearted touch to her craft. We are beyond happy with how all of our wedding photos turned out. You'd be crazy not to hire Emma!

    Emma Mullins Photography's reply:

    Thank you, Liz!! I'm so happy you and Eric enjoyed your experience with me! I had so much fun on your winter wedding day and wish you nothing but the best :) Thank you again for having me!!

    Pleasant, Professional and Talented!

    Emma is a pro!! My wife and I spent many months browsing what felt like hundreds of wedding photographers. When we came across Emma's website, we knew we found someone special. We sent in an inquiry and received a response quite fast. Emma invited us to chat with her over Zoom so that she could understand our needs best and so she could craft a custom proposal for us. After our first meeting, she sent us our proposal within 48 hours. It included package options that were very descriptive and easy to understand. After carefully discussing the options with my wife, we picked the package that suited our needs and budget best. Emma then sent us a welcome correspondence that was full of great information for couples who are prepping for their wedding, including some blog posts from her website. This was a wonderful way to get us better acquainted with her and also so that we had an idea of what to expect on the big day! Her questionnaire is very detailed and thorough, so we immediately knew we were in good hands. Her professionalism is A+ and unmatched! She has the best loving and caring energy and she's a barrel of fun to hang out with. Emma made us feel SO good on our wedding day and did a wonderful job from start to finish. We just received our album of photos, which left us speechless and emotional. Emma truly captured the magic of the night. Our families all cried looking at the beautiful images. Emma is worth every penny! So pleasant, professional and talented. It's rare to be all three! I highly recommend Emma for anyone's special photography needs!!

    Outstanding!

    Emma was absolutely amazing to work with! We would recommend her to anyone looking to capture any special life moments! We just recently used her for our wedding this past October and were beyond pleased. Professional, fun, outgoing and talented. We just recently got our pictures back and they captured everything we had asked for. Highly recommended! Thank you for taking such great care of us on our important day!

    Emma was fantastic!

    Emma photographed our wedding last October and was fantastic to work with! She was always quick to respond to our questions and was the most organized of all the vendors we worked with. That provided a great deal of peace of mind while planning everything that goes into a wedding, and she even offered advice on how to best schedule the day and maximize our time with photos. She was also super helpful when we had to reschedule due to Covid. We recently received our pictures, and not that we鈥檙e biased but her shots at Alice Millar Chapel where we had our ceremony came out better than any others we鈥檝e seen!

    Fantastic engagement and wedding photo experience!

    My husband and I could not be happier with our choice to have Emma photograph our engagement and wedding. Since our first meeting, Emma had a bright and vibrant energy that encompassed all that she did, including planning, shooting, and finishing. She was communicative and responsive before our shoots, making sure to form and understand our expectations. While shooting, Emma was confident, adaptable, and creative while providing direction, but also gave plenty of latitude to make it our own. She made sure to incorporate our special people, places, and even our dog! Overall, Emma went above and beyond our expectations, and worked well with us - two photography neophytes - to capture our special days!

    Book her now!

    Emma is THE BEST! If she鈥檚 still available for your wedding date, book her now.

    Finding the right photographer was very important to my husband and I, and we loved that the pictures in her portfolio were both authentic and gorgeous. Emma is also so knowledgeable and easy to work with - she recommended spots around Chicago for both our engagement and wedding photos, and was happy to try out a new spot that was personal to us as well. She was extremely flexible with all of our last minute COVID-related changes, and didn鈥檛 miss a beat. We absolutely love our engagement and wedding pictures and would recommend her to anyone!

    A Perfect Match

    Emma is absolutely amazing. She is extremely knowledgeable, kind, encouraging, fun, and, above all, generous. And, of course, she is a truly gifted photographer. Our photos are stunning. With Emma, we were able to be comfortable and enjoy ourselves as we worked together to commemorate our wedding. While neither of us had any experience being photographed professionally, Emma put us at ease and encouraged us to make the photo session as memorable and enjoyable as the day it commemorated.

    Because of COVID related delays and complications, many aspects of our wedding were changed, sometimes very quickly and sometimes very slowly. In all cases, Emma was understanding, empathetic, and quick to offer her expertise and guidance. We decided to cancel our friends and family wedding altogether and instead focus on a personal day at the courthouse. Emma was our only guest and the photos she took that day are perfect. We could not be happier that we have her art and memories of working with her linked to our wedding day. We cannot recommend Emma strongly enough.

    The Best There Is!

    Emma Mullins was the ideal wedding photographer. We had to make a ton of decisions while planning our wedding, and hiring Emma was the best of them. The pictures themselves were gorgeous, and we鈥檙e so thrilled to have them for the rest of our lives鈥攂ut a few of the intangibles along the way made her truly irreplaceable.

    A few major advantages of hiring Emma:

    1) Both of us are teachers, so we didn鈥檛 have an infinite budget when it came to wedding expenses, but our top priority was hiring a great photographer, so we had our work cut out for us: we wanted someone amazing, but we also wanted someone affordable. (Plenty of wedding photographers charge more than $5K, and several charge more than $10K. We couldn鈥檛 do that.) After our engagement session, it became pretty clear that Emma was an extraordinary value at the price.

    2) Neither of us is particularly at ease in front of a camera, but Emma is kind and gracious, and she went out of her way to make us feel comfortable and relaxed. The engagement photo session, which she added to the wedding package for a steal, was invaluable in helping us get used to the (somewhat unnatural, for us) experience of being photographed. Emma is both professional and casual, organized and relaxed. We immediately knew that we were in good hands, and both the engagement session and the wedding were much more comfortable as a result.

    3) The pictures! They exceeded all expectations. Beautiful and special. Not to belabor the point, but Emma is extremely good at her job.

    Don鈥檛 make the mistake of hiring someone who isn鈥檛 Emma Mullins! She鈥檚 quite literally the best. We鈥檙e so thrilled to have hired her.

    Extremely Happy

    We absolutely loved working with Emma.

    We booked her over 18 months before our wedding, so we had time to conduct very thorough interviews with our would-be photographers. From our initial conversations, she just seemed to understand exactly what we were looking for. We are not Vogue, modelesque folks. We didn't want wedding pictures that made it look like we were or were trying to be. What we got was a perfect snapshot of the day. You can hear the laughs just looking at the photos.

    Operationally, she was also a dream. We took several LARGE photographs (read 26 members in all) and she was a champion with wrangling, directing, and coaching our families. When she was with me and my bridesmaids, it was like we were all just hanging out. It felt effortless, so it was so easy to take photographs.

    I'd HIGHLY recommend Emma to any and all Chicago brides.

    Absolutely amazing!

    It was an absolute pleasure working with Emma and the Emma Mullins Photography team for our wedding in June 2021. We used Emma Mullins Photography for our photos, video, and photobooth and we are beyond happy with all the results. From the beginning we knew we loved the style of her photography, but we were absolutely blown away with our wedding photos. They truly captured the moment and energy of our wedding. We got so many compliments on how beautiful, candid, and lively our photos were. Everything about the whole process was great from booking, communication, logistics, to receiving the photos. We are so lucky to have found her! There were a few non traditional moments that Emma and the team captured that I will treasure forever - lots of laughs and happy memories. We also genuinely had a blast with Emma and the team at our wedding, great to have that connection and trust, like a friend was talking our photos :) Any hoo look no further for the perfect wedding photographer and team!!!

    Amazing Photography and Amazing Team!

    My husband and I LOVED working with Emma! We aren't natural in front of a camera at all, but Emma made both the engagement pics and wedding photos super easy. She and her team captured all the important moments of our wedding day, and Emma is such a cheerful presence to have around that she made it all that much better. We also used Emma to stream our wedding, and the stream was flawless and included a download which we'll have forever.
    We couldn't believe how incredible the pictures were when we got the full gallery, and we can't wait to start working towards the album. Thanks Emma and team for an amazing experience!

    Thank you, Libby!!! Your wedding day was such a joy to capture! I loved working with you and Avi and am so happy you enjoyed your experience with us :) Thanks again for having us in May!

    11/10 would hire again!

    We loved working with Emma and her team of associates and videographers! From the very first conversation, we were confident that Emma would capture our day, and with every meeting, our faith in her grew. She listened to what we wanted and added her (much needed) finesse and expertise to perfectly capture our big day.

    Emma added so much joy to the "photo shoot" component of our day, and fit right in with our family and friends, as evidenced by how authentic the candid shots she captured were.

    We're so thrilled that we went with Emma Mullins Photography - choosing a photographer can be an overwhelming decision, but again, after that first meeting, we never looked back, and you won't either!

I had the chance to work with Emma at a destination wedding in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands in 2017. I've performed thousands of weddings over the years and worked with countless photographers. Emma was one of the most pleasant and professional photographers I've ever worked with. And it goes without saying that her work is stunning! I would highly recommend her to any couple looking for amazing photos and a fun experience.
