We study theoretically electromagnetic radiation emitted by inelastic Cooper-pair tunneling. We consider a dc-voltage-biased superconducting transmission line terminated by a Josephson junction. The leading-order expansion in the tunneling coupling, similar to the "P(E)-theory", can be used to investigate the photon emission statistics in the limit of sequential (independent) Cooper-pair tunneling. By explicitly evaluating the system characteristics up to the fourth-order in the tunneling coupling, we account for dynamics between consecutively tunneling Cooper pairs. Within this approach we investigate how temporal correlations in the charge transport can be seen in the second-order coherence of the emitted microwave radiation. In particular, we find that a Coulomb blockade provided by a high zero-frequency impedance can be used to create antibunched microwave photons at a very high rate.
