Meet the Artist

RameenAwanLogo-Blue.png

Hi there, I'm Rameen! (pronounced like ramen but with the double ee sound at the end) 

I'm a Chicago, Milwaukee, & destination portrait, event, & wedding photographer in love with capturing life's beautiful moments. 

From a young age, I've had a heart for the arts and quickly fell in love with creating dynamic images. Photographs capture the documentary of life, artfully freezing moments and memories in time, and I am honored to be a part of documenting chapters of your story. 

I am incredibly passionate about providing you with both art and a luxurious experience. My photography has always been a means of capturing the art of life. I'm here to make you feel your most beautiful and to relish in the moments of your life you choose to document. I wholeheartedly believe that so much of that comes with making sure you and I vibe and have a great connection. It's why I only take a select few clients, so that I can provide a luxurious experience and put my all into being your number one hype-woman. 

When I'm not taking photos, you'll most likely find me drinking a latte and with a musical instrument in hand. I've explored and indulged in a plethora of creative endeavors over the years, from calligraphy to music, and my creative spirit allows be to pursue my passions with purpose. 

As always, thank you for being a part of my journey, and for letting me be a part of yours. If you have any questions regarding rates, availability, events, collaboration, or just want to say hello, don't be afraid to reach out! My FAQ is below and you can contact me by filling out the form on the "Inquiries" page. I cannot wait to meet you!

With love,

Rameen Awan

Frequently Asked Questions

"Why should I choose you?" "What are your rates?"
...the burning questions.

Alright listen, I'm not Meredith Grey over here so I'm not going to force you to pick me, choose me, love me. I hope you're here because you've already seen my work and the love I pour into it. I pride myself on going above and beyond for my clients, and being more than just a photographer for you throughout this process. Whether that's helping you create a timeline for your day, running last minute to the drug store to grab you false lashes, picking up a coffee for you on the way, or being your personal dress pinner, I'll be your best friend for the day! Choosing the right photographer can be a big investment to make, and I am confident that choosing me will provide you not just with photos, but a unique, timeless, and beautiful experience that you will cherish for a lifetime. As a reference point, here are starting prices for a few of my services: wedding packages start at $3,250 for 8 hours of coverage, but reach out and let's talk about creating and customizing a package just for you & your needs. You won't regret it.

How soon will I get my photos?

While I am meticulous, I know how exciting it can be and, at times, how impatient we can feel to see all of the photos, so I will always do my best to swiftly give you a beautiful and full gallery, and will never harbor gorgeous photos of yours. I always try to give a couple sneak peaks within a week or so of your shoot but for getting your full galleries back, here is what my average turnaround time looks like: -Portrait galleries: 3-4 weeks -Events galleries: 1-2 months -Wedding galleries: up to 4 months.

What's your background & experience in photography?

It ages me to say it, but I have over ten years of experience in photography! Unlike most people who start photography by capturing portraits or still life, I actually did the entire opposite. I got my start in live music, stage, and concert photography which though challenging, was such an amazing experience that I wouldn’t trade the world for! I truly feel that the unique and constantly in motion nature of it has given me an edge on really freezing passing moments and movements in time, and has shaped so much of my current photography style in creating a luxurious timeless, cinematic, and documentary style gallery for you.

Do you do videography?

Unfortunately, I do not offer videography. I put my 110% into my photography to make sure every moment (or at least as much as I can get) of your day is photographed and do not want to split my attention! I can, however, recommend a videographer that I love and frequently work with if that is something that you're interested in.

What add-on services do you offer?

At the moment, in addition to my photography packages, here is the full list of the add-on services currently offered: -SLR Film Photography -Same-day polaroids & digital film simulation -Custom, luxury photo book, magazine, or album design & creation

Can you travel to us for our wedding?

While I am currently based in Chicago & Milwaukee, I am willing to travel! If you choose to book me for your wedding events, we would simply add the calculated cost of travel and accomodations. You've already got enough on your plate with thinking about your events, so to avoid adding one more thing onto it, I take the initiative in calculating the total cost of travel and add that onto your package prior to booking.

Now that that's done, let's talk
