Melissa & Anand's Museum Campus Engagement Session (featuring Winston)

“My favorite thing about working with couples is learning THEIR story! I want to photograph you on your wedding day so you can relive those moments each time you see your images. This is your LIFE (!!), and I strive to capture it as is – perfections, imperfections, and all.” - Emma of Emma Mullins Photography

She captured Melissa and Anand’s engagement story on the first true day of spring this year in Chicago (and we all know how long that took to come around!) Take a look behind the lens of Emma and how she planned their perfect West Loop and Museum Campus engagement session that featured the couples adorable dog, Winston!


“It seemed like the entire city wanted to be outside after a week of cool weather and rain! It was the perfect opportunity for us to get together for their session :)

We began at their home in the West Loop to capture some family photos with their beloved pup, Winston. Seriously, he was so well behaved! After a walk around Mary Bartelme Park, we had a quick wardrobe change and headed to the lakefront. Melissa and Anand made each other laugh the entire time and were an absolute joy to be around!

These two clearly adore each other and make engagement photos look like so much FUN!"

We love that Melissa and Anand opted to include their adorable dog Winston into their engagement photos! If you are looking to include your pet on your wedding day but want to avoid the hassle or extra stress, engagement photos may be a great alternative to include your furry family!
