I always say that the little black box changed my life forever. I was always fascinated by still life imagery throughout my life. I began professionally photographing weddings solo in 2014. Nothing about traditional wedding photography appealed to me. So, right away I made the decision that I would photograph the way I wanted to by photographing real moments, creating bold and artistic portraits, and making images that were truly unique and worthy of celebration. Right away my perspective seemed to translate with clients. Every day of my life is filled with a collection of photographs, and yet, every time that I pick up my camera I learn something new about light, perspective, composition, people, and life. I like to push the limits of creativity, and am addicted to spontaneous moments. 
My wedding collections are infused with consistent and creative technique, dynamic portraiture and bold photojournalism. I work with couples who are adventurous, creative and appreciate creative professional photography. They are inspired by and admire the art of visual storytelling. I capture those moments that will be cherished for years on end. 
The Florida Keys is an incredible place- it's one of my favorite places in the world, and I am grateful to call it home. Beyond the unmatched beauty of the Islands and village community, people want to be a part of it and be married here! If your dream day doesn't take place in The Florida Keys, shoot me an email and we can speak about how I can be a part of it, no matter where it is.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I am based in South Florida.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I have been shooting professionally now for 5 years and average 35-50 per year.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

I do not have a studio. I meet with my clients however possible and convenient be it via Skype, telephone, or in person.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

I am an avid waterman. I love to fish, spearfish, dive, lobster, and paddleboard in my free time. I try to spend more time on and under the water than I do land.

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.
