Michael Freas

United States

Michael describes himself as “a real-moments photographer”. He strives to create bold, artistic portraits that are worthy of celebration. His unique perspective and down to earth personality translates well with clients, and he takes time to get to know all of his wedding couples. Michael likes to push the limits of creativity and thrives off of spontaneity. He focuses on the story of the day and how it unfolds, documenting the romance and love.

When Michael was in high school, his grandfather gave him his first camera, a Kodak Ektra 100 and he began shooting film. It was during this time that the seed was planted for Michael’s unique eye for composition. A lifelong soccer player, Michael played goalkeeper in high school and college. As a goalkeeper, you have to anticipate movements, much the same way you have to anticipate special moments happening at a wedding. His documentarian style captures these fleeting moments creating images that are authentic and timeless.

Each year, Michael shoots around 50 full-day weddings, including many destination weddings. An avid outdoorsman, Michael enjoys travelling to new places and exploring the beauty of the natural world. He loves all activities on the water including fishing, boating and surfing. Michael is inspired by nature, light, abstract design and the love he witnesses between his couples.
