Contact Michael Freas

I've spent the last 15 years living and traveling all over Florida. I'm now thrilled to call Miami Beach home, but I still love to travel, both throughout this great state and the world at large. Nature, design, light, and music have always drawn me in and quieted me. I don't run from chaos, I dive in headfirst... that's where the beauty is! That's where the Real Moments exist! 
I'm a photojournalist and a storyteller. I've never found a story I prefer telling than the story of two people committing to each other for the rest of their lives. That's what wedding photography is about.  
Real Moments between two people and their family and friends. Real Wedding Stories! My name is Michael Freas. I'm the guest you didn't invite to your wedding, but you're so glad that I came.

I am based in Western NC, but travel all over the world. Travel is included in all my pricing

Michael was beyond professional and made everyone feel so comfortable in front of the camera. He captured beautiful candid moments of the entire day. Highly recommend !!
Working with Mike was an amazing experience. From the time I contacted him for pricing and info to the very end of our wedding reception. He is so down to earth and makes your pictures so much fun to take. We are blown away by how kind he was and our pictures are absolutely breath taking. Not choosing him would be an absolute mistake. We are beyond happy and can’t thank Freas Photography enough!
Long after the food is cleaned away and the music has faded, the photos will remain to tell the story. Mike was a fantastic professional and understood our quirky sense of humor and knew exactly how to get our personality to show in all our pictures. Everyone who has seen our photos has commented on the vibrancy of the colors and the unique perspective. That had drawn us to Mike originally when we started researching who to use. Upon our first meeting we immediately knew he was our guy. Easy to talk to, easy to work with. He was always available to talk about any details or ideas Read More surrounding our pictures.

Our plan was the throw the party of the century and based on all the photo evidence it looks like we succeeded! Thank you, Mike, for making the great memories into some amazingly high quality mementos for us to cherish for years to come.
