You know that friend in college who was always making sure everyone was safe and responsible and fed and alive? You know, the mom of the crew? That’s me. This came in pretty handy when I became a mother four years ago. But it also comes in handy every weekend at weddings. I love taking care of the details for my couples and making sure everything runs according to schedule. Being in charge and helping is in my DNA and it’s what makes me so good at what I do.
Once upon a time, I was in college, on track to become a doctor. Which was surprising to no one in my life because I've always been career-driven and future-focused.
What was surprising? My re-route into photography. Marriage and motherhood led me right to it! I took the passion I had always had for success and just redirected it to my newfound love of story telling through photos.
Photography allowed the artist in me to hold hands with the academic. It connected my brain to my heart and I’m proud of the work that connection produces.
I honestly don't even know where to begin! 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.
Where do I even begin with Areeg?! She was SO professional, organized, sweet, and even silly which I love! 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 (My husband and I were the first to get married out of our friends). 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 ;) Areeg is a perfectionist when it comes to editing pictures. 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!!! She did such an amazing job on our wedding in San Diego. Areeg is so fun and creative, I couldn’t have chosen a better photographer to capture the most important moments of our lives. She is very prompt and professional, We talked over the phone and I knew it was meant to be. She truly has the best vibes. She answered all of my questions and acknowledged all of my concerns. 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. She worked well with my videographers, my coordinators, the wedding party, and everyone else. I would definitely recommend Areeg to any bride to be. 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.
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 in our engagement session, she is funny, positive, not overbearing, creative, and gets your pictures back to you so fast! We can’t wait to say "I do" especially knowing that Areeg will be there to capture it all!
We hired Areeg as our wedding photographer last year. The first thing that caught my eye was her amazing work. It’s so light, romantic, and fun. When we messaged her, I was so impressed by her fast response, attention to detail, & 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 worked amazing with my other vendors & made me feel like a princess. Her work speaks for itself but the behind the scenes is SO important to me. 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!
