REAL MOMENTS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
ASHEVILLE & WESTERN NORTH CAROLINA
Are you considering a Destination Wedding in Asheville, NC? It’s time to turn your real romance into a dream wedding. Weddings provide the raw ingredients for amazing photographs – the beautiful ceremony, the excitement, the spontaneity, and all your friends and family – but it takes the right person to capture those moments.
That’s where I come in. My name is Michael Freas, and I am a wedding photographer based in Asheville, NC.
I use my photojournalism style to capture the unfiltered love and emotion between you and your life partner. Other photographers can make you feel stiff and stilted for photos, whereas with me you can relax throughout the entire experience. I’m here to remove stress, not add to it. When I photograph your Asheville or Western North Carolina Mountain wedding, it’ll put your mind at ease knowing I’m capturing the organic, raw intimate moments happening all around you.
This is the fun part! At this point, we’ve had so many interactions planning together and chatting over social media that we’ll be more than prepared for your exciting wedding in the Blue Ridge Mountains. I’ll be ready to act as a guide at the venue or on your hike, on-hand to capture the wedding based on your vision.”
Tell me a little about you! What’s most important to you, who is most important to you, what plans you’ve made for your wedding already – really anything that you would like to share to get us started.

I’ve spent the last 15 years traveling through Asheville and the western North Carolina mountains. Just a few things I love about the area: the leaves in the Fall, the snow-covered mountains in the winter, and the beautiful green landscape and hiking trails during the spring and summer. Whether you get married at the Biltmore Estate, the Grove Park Inn, The Ridge Asheville, Claxton Farm, or any of the other amazing venues in Western North Carolina, I look forward to turning your wedding into a curated visual story that you can cherish for generations to come.
Wherever your adventure lies, your wedding photos should represent your journey finding each other. They should tell the story of YOU.
I want to tell your story visually. No cookie-cutter images. I want you to feel like you can step inside your wedding photos and feel exactly what you felt on your special day.
Connections matter to me, so I take the time to sit down with my couples, get to know them and their stories, and discuss their vision for their dream wedding. By the time I show up to capture your wedding day, you’ll feel like you’re seeing an old friend.
As an Asheville and Western North Carolina-based photographer, I cut my teeth creating stunning images in the mountains. As your wedding photographer, I’ll be your friend, your tour guide, and your favorite photographer with perfect timing and that expert touch to catch the true beauty that is your wedding
If we want to capture your perfect wedding day, we need to talk about exactly what that looks like. I want to get to the heart of your vision and your story so we can create images that stay true to what inspires you while capturing the authentic you.
I work in a photojournalistic documentary style called Real Moments Wedding Photography. This means I do so much more than pose people in front of the camera, which is something we try to stay away from. I’m drawn to all the raw, emotional, REAL moments that tell your story. On the day of your wedding, my mission is to capture all those moments as I see them and curate them into the perfect representation of your special day, all while having the most fun possible on your day!
Your wedding doesn’t just mark the beginning of your next big adventure. It is an adventure – so let’s make it feel like one! This is the perfect chance to see the world together from great heights, explore the lush forestry of the mountainside, and create lasting memories we’ll capture for you to keep forever.
The image count is completely dependent on the unique proceedings of each elopement. My goal is always to represent your elopement as authentically as possible through dynamic imagery. On average, assuming you plan to engage in all the traditional customs, I typically deliver around 60-80 images every hour I cover your wedding.
I aim to get all your images edited and delivered to you as quickly as possible while sticking to the gold standard my clients expect from me. Two weeks after we say goodbye we’ll have Sneak Peeks ready for you to look over. We strive to have all your images available in a curated gallery online 45 days after the wedding at the latest.
All of your images are YOURS to keep as soon as I deliver them to you at no charge! After receiving your images in gallery form, you can download them and have them printed by whoever you like! Your gallery will also include a few printing lab recommendations as well.
