    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鈥檓 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 馃挄

    Amazing experience!

    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!

    Best Photographer Experience Ever!

    My husband and I recently eloped in Key West. Being from out of town, we were nervous about what vendors and people to work with and who to trust. Michael immediately quieted the concern over which photographer to use. He was so helpful from the get go and took time to get to know us starting day 1. On the day of our event, he made the experience fun, lighthearted, and seamless by going above and beyond to make us feel like the time we had to take pictures was all about having fun, enjoying the day, and sharing some laughter. We've received AMAZING sneak peak pictures already and can not wait to see the rest of his work. If you are looking for an amazing photographer, go with Michael Freas!

    Absolutely the BEST there is!

    This review is loooong overdue! What is there to say about Michael except that he is鈥

    ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! THE BEST, MOST STUNNING PHOTOGRAPHER, EVER!

    The moment my new husband and I became engaged, I knew that in planning any wedding, the photographer was going to be one of the most important decisions we would make for our wedding. Planning a dream wedding without the fairytale photos is absolutely pointless. Moreover, I knew that I didn鈥檛 want the regurgitated typical staged poses that have been the norm for the last century. I wanted someone to capture the moments, the emotions, the art. Michael is not only an amazing photographer, but his work tells the story in the most unobtrusive and artistic way.

    I stalked Michael鈥檚 work having found him on Instagram while looking for a photographer that knew my venue and took the best photos, by the advice of one of my best friends, and bridesmaid, who is also an amazing photographer. She said I needed someone that knew the ins and outs of the venue, the lighting, etc鈥 She was right, but even knowing how important this all was, I was intimidated by the cost. Michael instantly scoffed at my resistance and worked with me to make it happen within my budget. This was only the start.

    Who would have known, at that time, that COVID-19, was going to be the act of god, that I could never have planned for? Needless to say, three weeks before our wedding we were postponed. Michael not only worked with me to change the date without penalizing me, but also called a couple vendors, along with my amazing planner, to get everyone on board. Michael and I continued to communicate through the entire postponement, becoming friends impassioned by the many politics surrounding the whole pandemic.

    On the day of, Michael showed up true to form, full of energy. He is like that friend you haven鈥檛 seen in years, but you pick right up where you left off like you never missed a day. My husband, normally awkward in photos, instantly felt comfortable with Michael鈥 He was a true guys guy, and my husband actually had fun throughout the entire process!

    If you are debating at all鈥 stop now, you have found your photographer!

    Michael, I cannot thank you enough for all you did for us! We may catch up w you for an anniversary shoot in North Carolina!

    Amazing experience

    When we first began looking for a photographer for our elopement we didn't quite know what we wanted, but after looking at Michael's website we knew he was the person we wanted to work with. I hate super posed photos and wanted our portraits to really be "us," not cookie-cutter or look like stock photos. After speaking with him we definitely knew we made the right choice. Since we were coming in from out of town Michael offered to meet up with us the day before our wedding and scout the perfect locations for our ceremony and photos in the Key West Garden Club. He was funny and very down to earth, making us feel very comfortable. The day of our wedding he timed our final photos perfect and caught the incredible Key West sunset I had hoped and dreamed would be the backdrop of our portraits. To say we are happy with our photos is an understatement. We absolutely love them!

    The BEST and most creative wedding photographer!

    Mike was definitely my first choice when picking our wedding photographer! He has such a unique style and (personality to match!). He was easy to work with and quick to respond in the months leading up to the wedding. Mike takes the time to get to know his clients in advance so that he can best capture their day. The photos turned out beautifully and everyone that sees them says he captured our personalities spot on! Hands down he was the best choice we made among all the wedding decisions.

    Best Photographer Ever!

    Where do I even begin with Mike and his work? Mike shot my wedding in Sorrento, Italy. He was incredibly professional, informative, and helpful throughout the whole process. My husband and I are quite awkward in front of a camera, but with Mike's humor and guidance, our pictures came out amazing! Because our wedding was a destination wedding, Mike took the time to video chat with us, and we looked on Google Street View at all the local spots. He also arrived several days early to scope out some good spots near the venue to take pictures. I would recommend him to anyone who wants their wedding to be fun, relaxed, and beautifully captured! We cannot thank Mike enough for all the time, care, and work he put into capturing our perfect day.

    We cannot say enough good things about our experience with Mike Freas as our photographer.

    We cannot say enough good things about our experience with Mike as our photographer.

    We were married December 2019 at the Hemingway House in Key West, FL. Mike was an obvious choice as his work spoke for itself. His portfolio displayed the exact vibe we were going for 鈥 effortless, fun, artistic, unique. We told Mike from the get-go that we wanted to limit posed pictures. We wanted all candids with the hopes of capturing real, unstaged moments. Mike most definitely delivered our vision. He was a true ninja, getting on the dance floor and capturing all of our guests having a great time.

    Mike was so familiar with the Hemingway property, he knew from experience exactly what was going to work. He knew EVERY SINGLE ONE of our vendors personally and spoke with them directly to work out all the details - which made it soooo easy for us! During the months leading up to our wedding, people around town would ask 鈥渨ho is your photographer鈥 and when we mentioned Mike Freas they said he was the best.

    Our favorite part of our wedding day was driving around before our ceremony took place 鈥 snapping pics all over Key West. He is so chill and laid back, he made our wedding day relaxed and fun. If you are reading this, do yourself a favor and call him right now! We were over 18 months out and he was already filling up his schedule.

    Michael Freas is the best in the business!

    We absolutely LOVE Michael Freas! He was referred to us by a friend and it was honestly one of the best matches in this entire wedding process. He is so organized, and his authentic self which makes the process of getting to know each other fun and easy. He truly cares about his work, his attention to detail, and knowing you as a couple - so be prepared to have real conversations. Go into the experience with ideas around what you want and Michael will make sure it all happens. We met several times leading up to the wedding via skype which was a great way to stay connected. On the day of, he was everywhere! He captured the MOST AMAZING first look pictures and puts such quality in his work. We haven't seen everything yet, but what we have seen we are obsessed with. At the wedding, everywhere I turned around he was there capturing the moment, so we were able to just be us and enjoy that night and he captured everything we were experiencing. He works hard and it shows!!

    My now fianc茅 hired Mike for a surprise proposal shoot in Key West! Everything was perfectly coordinated, and I had no idea there was photographer shooting photos just behind the bushes while we were on the beach. Then we had an amazing photo shoot and our happiness and excitement is captured in a variety of shots with the beautiful backdrop at Fort Zachary Taylor State Park. We received our edited images so quickly as promised and I love them!

    We love michael freas photography!

    My husband and I truly cannot say enough how happy we are that we chose Michael Freas Photography for our wedding. From the day we hired him it was easy, efficient, and smooth sailing. Michael really cares about each of his clients and is extremely talented. On the day of the wedding Michael ran the show which is exactly what we needed. He took control of the day and made everything run smoothly and made sure we got all the photos we wanted but still stayed on time and it was honestly the most helpful quality. The day of can get really chaotic but Michael and his team made everything run smoothly which eased our nerves. Then we got our photos back (in less than a month) and we were blown away. The quality of his work is channeled though every photo and we relive our wedding day every time we look through them. He captured every candid special moment and we are so beyond grateful. If you are looking for a wedding photographer, look no further than Michael Freas Photography. He is AMAZING in every way鉂わ笍

    Absolutely the best!

    Freas photography blows the competitors out of the water. His images are classic, but also fun and modern. He has an incredible eye for light and can capture moments that would pass in a blink of an eye. Mike is so friendly to work with, he keeps you at ease and makes you genuinely laugh (no fake smiles in our photos!). When our timeline got interrupted in our wedding in March he made sure to stay later than planned to capture a late night cake cutting and last song on the dance floor. If you're looking for unique, genuine, meaningful (pose-free) photos you have to hire Freas Photography. We are so glad we chose Freas and would highly recommend him to anyone!

    Photo shoot in Key West

    My husband and I hired Mike for a wedding photo shoot in Key West! It was an excellent experience working with him. He is fun and cheerful and has very unique, creative and amazing perspectives. He made us feel very comfortable during the entire photo shooting process and captured all the special and important moments for us. We got the edited images much faster than we expected and we love them! One of our photos even won an WPJA Artistic Award! We would definitely recommend Mike to anyone.

    My fiance hired Mike back in August to come along on a boat ride with us, posing as a travel photographer, for a surprise engagement shoot. Not only did Mike do an excellent job at playing along with the surprise, he captured the most unbelievable pictures of the event. From the moment we got on the boat to right when I said "Yes", Mike was hiding behind us capturing every second. Afterwards, we did an entire engagement shoot on the island, followed by some dolphin watching where Mike got some awesome shots for us! Throughout the entire day Mike was so professional, polite, and fun! You can tell that he is truly a professional at what he does and has such a passion for photography, which shows in every single one of his pictures. He helped to make our day one that we will never forget. Months later, we still have people telling us how amazing our photos are! If you are looking for a photographer in Key West, look no further. You will not regret hiring Freas Photography!!

    Best. Photographer. Ever.

    Mike was one of the first vendors we hired after getting multiple recommendations to do so. Between our engagement shoot and our wedding, we can't imagine having a better, more genuine and dedicated person to capture some of the biggest moments in our new life together. We now consider Mike an invaluable part of this new adventure and a dear friend. If you're on the fence about hiring him, jump the fence and just do it! You will not regret it.

    I've had the opportunity to work with Mike on multiple weddings, and I cannot begin to express how professional and creative he is with all of his clients! As a wedding planner, I appreciate how involved he is throughout the entire planning process. Mike is always in constant communication with his couples to ensure he captures their special day perfectly. One thing I've noticed, and really like about Mike, is that he always gets to know his couples and forms lifelong friendships along the way.

    We hired Mike for our wedding in Ohio, and we could not be happier with our decision! Although we gave Mike a bit of a challenge, with having separate venues and roughly 160 guests, he captured our entire wedding day with ease!!! Our wedding photos tell our story, and brings back all of those amazing feelings that we had throughout our wedding weekend. We cannot wait to see the rest!!! If you hire Mike for your event, you will not be disappointed!

    Michael was incredible to work with. We came across his photos online and fell in love with his perspectives and colors. From the first phone call, to receiving our photos, we were extremely pleased. Michael spent time with me on the phone sharing helpful advice on so many aspects of our wedding day, beyond photography, and helped us in making many choices for our big day. Every one of his suggestions was a hit. My husband and I were a little nervous about feeling 鈥渘atural鈥 in our photos, as photo shoots are out of our wheelhouse, but Michael made us feel incredibly comfortable and had us laughing and smiling all the way through. Our photos were sent to us faster than we could鈥檝e hoped for, and we couldn鈥檛 be happier. We have received so many compliments on the beauty and vibrancy of our photos. We would definitely recommend Freas Photography to anyone.

    There aren't enough good things to say about Mike! He was a pleasure to work with and his photos were breathtaking! The last thing we wanted were photos like everyone else's, and he delivered! If you're looking for fun, professional and creative, Mike Freas is your Guy!
