Wedding Photographer

Welcome to Emma Melin studios

TRAVELING WHEREVER YOU TAKE ME

SOULFUL, ROMANTIC, AND POETIC IMAGERY
That makes you feel some sort of way. 

Life is about enjoying the little things. Like dancing in the kitchen with your partner or breakfast in bed on a Sunday. My job is as your photographer to show you how these seemingly minuscule moments are something truly beautiful. Emma Melin Studios exists to preserve your most precious and beautiful moments, no matter how big or small.

The face behind the camera

Founder // wearer of many hats

Hi there, thanks for stopping by. I’m Emma, the face behind Emma Melin Studios. I am an outgoing and free-spirited photographer living in the Midwest. My heart longs for creating art and telling remarkable stories. I love a good trip to the farmers market, a wine night with my friends, and spending time with my loved ones. I am blessed to have one of the coolest jobs out there, capturing your unique beauty! I enjoy working with intimate couples, outgoing seniors, and bold brands. Together we will bring your vision to life and tell your unique story through images. I can’t wait to meet you!

LOVE LETTERS FROM PAST CLIENTS

“We are so BEYOND grateful for our engagement shoot evening with Emma. The entire thing was so fun we weren’t ready for it to end! She has a special way of making you feel so comfortable, it felt like we were in our own little world, I forgot there were other people walking by!! She perfectly captures the special moments both big and small - the kisses, a smirk, the last moment your fingers touch before pulling away - this girl doesn’t skip a beat. Anyone would be lucky to work with this gem of a human. Her work is so raw and we can’t stop staring at our sneak peaks and absolutely can’t wait to see more!”
