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.

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.
WESLEY + ALLYSON
If you want a typical wedding photographer, he's NOT your guy. If you want someone who takes in every aspect of your day, carefully taking time to think about where the best shot is going to be, helping you with every step in planning, and who is seriously dedicated to his craft (and his clients) then he is DEFINITELY your guy. His work is ART. He fits in to the crowd, chatting with each guest to make them all feel comfortable and just like he's part of the day. We spent a year and a half planning and almost a full year of multiple postponements and he was with us every step of the way. When Read More we finally saw each other on the big day, he was just as excited as I was. It's been 2 weeks and we just got our gallery and whew, it's amazing! If you're still considering who to use, stop and book the dude ASAP.
