I’ve spent the last 15 years living and traveling all over the East Coast. I’m now thrilled to call the Western North Carolina home, but I still love to travel, both throughout this great country and the world at large. Nature, light, design 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.

Crazy fun, crazy good
Michael is an artist. I could stop there but I will add a bit more detail for those of you making the tough decision of selecting a photographer. My story is useful, I think, as you're shopping vendors, as I got to see another side of folks once we had to start rescheduling and eventually cancelling our larger-scale event due to COVID. I actually started with a different Key West photographer who, after my deposit was paid, stopped responding to emails in a timely manner and all but ghosted me once I needed to reschedule/cancel. My event organizer (Jackie at First Flight - amazing!) recommended I touch base with Michael. Best thing I did. Michael was willing to take us on fairly last minute, and was just the best. He was flexible and supportive and really took the time to not only get to know us, but also helped me find an alternate venue and even hooked me up with a friend to work out a flower arrangement. After all that, he went on to take some of the most beautiful pictures I've ever seen. He even played along with my silly idea of taking some rain boot pictures since we narrowly missed getting rained out on the day of our ceremony! He made it fun and memorable after really feeling like everything was against us. Highly recommend if you are looking for photos that will not only stand the test of time but also stand out amongst the crowd.Sent on 10/09/2020

He is the BEST
My husband and I are blown away by Michael's talent. He made our wedding day the most special day of our lives! From the moment we met Michael we knew he was the one. His work speaks for itself and he has a way of brining the day to life with his eye for magic and his warm and refreshing personality. I personally hate taking pictures but our wedding day was my one exception, thanks to Michael making me feel so at ease.
I feel Michael has a supernatural gift for capturing once in a lifetime moments and he keeps it fun, professional and spectacular all the way. He is a genius at what he does and I’m so happy to see someone who is so talented and gifted, using their gifts to bless the world.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts 💕

Michael was a complete joy to work with from start to finish. Through the planning process and actual photo shoot, he makes you feel comfortable and like he is personalizing the session to you as a couple. Michael is easy going and just an overall blast to be around. He has a way of making sure you have fun during the shoot and it shows in his photos. We are blown away by the experience overall and by the incredible photos he gave us. I would recommend Michael's work over and over again!Sent on 03/25/2020
