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.

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.
