Hello, I'm Areeg. But you can call me Gigi.

My style is a blend of classic portraiture and documentary. I believe in capturing all the details and in-between moments while also guiding you into your most flattering angles. Being there to guide you for photos throughout the day and knowing when to step back for candids is a skill I've learned through years of experience. 

My job is so much more than taking pretty pictures. It’s documenting the smiles, laughter, and excitement that surrounds you. It’s making sure that your family portraits are fun and beautiful. It’s anticipating the moments that are going to matter to you most in the years to come.

It’s part of who I am to know your story and feel invested in your memories. I will preserve the moments where you smiled the biggest, kissed the longest, and hugged the hardest. That’s the ASW Experience.

Working with Areeg was the BEST decision we made for our entire wedding. From day one, not only was Areeg extremely professional, but she was kind, funny, and genuinely excited for my (now) husband and I. We actually found Areeg's work on Instagram, and we thank our lucky stars that we did! I sobbed when we received our entire wedding album, it was honestly more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. If you are thinking about booking Areeg, YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.

Areeg is professional, kind, and beyond talented! She makes you feel beautiful, while capturing you in the most lovely light! I absolutely love working with her and the end product is spectacular!

Coming from a very picky bride with a very specific vision I had a hard time finding a photographer. After looking through over a hundred photographers I came across Areeg on Instagram! She is more wonderful than I ever expected. Not only was she able to capture my relationship with my fiancé perfectly, she is funny, positive, not overbearing, creative, and gets your pictures back to you so fast!

Areeg was the photographer for our wedding and her direction was so clear and absolutely necessary for us as we didn’t know much of what we needed to do. She makes you feel relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera. And the pictures! I mean just look at the quality and her style. They’re so bright and romantic. Very instagram worthy if you’re into that kind of thing ;) She goes above and beyond and I’m grateful to have had her shoot our wedding day. When I got the pictures back, it truly felt like we were living the day all over again. Thanks for not missing a beat Areeg! I cannot recommend her enough!

Areeg is heaven sent from the Photo-Gods! Areeg is so fun and creative, I couldn’t have chosen a better photographer to capture the most important moments of our lives. Her pictures are so crisp and dreamy. I can’t stop looking at my photos. She captured every moment, from the tears to the laughter. Her photos look like they belong in a magazine, she is just that good. Thank you Areeg for being a part of our wedding journey. Thank you for capturing the moments that we will never get back. You hold a special place in our hearts and we will forever remember you.

I was so impressed by her fast response, attention to detail and the love she has for each person that she comes in contact with. We were really nervous about our engagement shoot because we had never had professional photos done but she made it SO easy for us. She’s fun & energetic and makes you feel like it’s just you and the person you’re with. She is the NICEST human being I’ve ever met. She is one of the most artistic & amazing photographers I’ve ever met. I can’t wait to recommend her to EVERY bride or person out there. I hope you hire her so that you can see exactly what I’m talking about. One of the best at her job!
