Contact Michael Freas

I’m a storyteller at heart, so I want my photos to tell a narrative about the people in them. I strive for bold colors, decisive angles, and digging deep into the moment. I’ve always seen life in a sort of chaotic technicolor, and I always have the biggest laugh in any room I’m in. 
 
I’ve been named one of the top 150 photographers in the world, and really humbled by it. I like people and telling the story of their relationship with my camera. I’d like to meet you,and find out how you see life. I'm really into coffee, so let's start over coffee and discover how your story can be told.

We worked with Michael for our engagement shoot and wedding day, and he exceeded our expectations with our photos! We had to postpone our wedding date due to covid and he was very flexible and understanding of our change. When wedding day came around, Michael made photo-taking fun and stress-free. He’s an incredibly talented photographer, who doesn’t settle for posed pictures. He makes a point of getting to know the couples he works with, so he can better understand how to capture their special moments. He’s a storytelling photographer, and it definitely showed in the final product. We can’t Read More recommend Michael enough, so if you need a photographer for your special day…look no further!

My husband and I live over a thousand miles from Key West and decided to do a planned elopement there. Of course the one day it rained was our wedding day, but Michael knew the island and the people on it so well, took the stress off of us, helped us make a new plan, and took the best photos we could have ever asked for!
MIRANDA + BERRY
Michael was incredibly easy to work with from the first video chat we had. Extremely personable and professional and made our wedding day a blast. He's the kind of person you want there with you spending your special day with you. He handled all of the wedding drama like a true professional and was a hit with all of our guests. Prepare for Michael to be all over the dance floor doing whatever it takes to get the perfect picture. Michael is willing to go that extra mile throughout the entire day and really capture everything that makes your wedding day special.
