The Breakers Palm Beach wedding

Working with Jan has been so amazing since the first day we ever spoke to one another. He is so easy to talk to, has such a great eye for detail, has such great suggestions for shooting, and his passion for shooting is so obvious. In addition to our wedding day, my husband and I had a shoot with Jan the day before our wedding as well. It was rainy and gloomy that day, but even our outdoor photos still came out AMAZING. It literally looks like we came out of a fashion magazine; you would never know how terrible the weather was. Jan can capture the beauty on camera in any situation. Our wedding photos are absolutely unbelievable. I have never felt more glamorous in my life than how Jan made me feel that day, and it reflects SO well in our wedding photos. I look at them every day and I can’t believe they’re real. It’s so much more than just his eye for shooting… his editing skills are top-notch, so far above and beyond other photographers I’ve seen. He can seamlessly remove and correct anything that detracts from the overall beauty of a photo, whether that’s an object in the background or a scar or line somewhere on your body. He pays attention to so many little details that I’ve seen other photographers ignore, like symmetry and color palette. On the day of our wedding, he made all of us feel so comfortable, continually made us laugh, and made us all feel so attractive and confident while shooting with him. He gave us so much good direction when we didn’t know how to stand or what to do. And all of our photos came out looking like they were from a magazine – not just your basic boring posed wedding photos. He made me feel like a supermodel. Even working with him to book travel and all the mundane details for my wedding was so easy because he is so nice and fun to talk to. And when he delivered our photos, they were even organized chronologically and by category (ie. ladies getting ready, ceremony, reception, portraits, etc), which made them so easy to review and choose from! I really hope that we get the chance to shoot with him again in the future! He captured our wedding so beautifully and went so far above and beyond what I ever expected from a wedding photographer, and was truly worth every penny. He is THE BEST!!!!!

If I could give Freire Wedding Photography 10 stars I would because they are definitely worth it! Jan came to my husband and my rescue when our original photographer bailed on us two weeks before our wedding. Obviously, I was worried having never met or worked with him before, but I truly believe God puts people in your life when you need them most, and this was definitely one of those times. Everything happens for a reason, and we are so glad Jan was referred to us by a friend. Not only did he calm my nerves, answer a million questions, and pay extra attention to us leading into our special day, but he was super positive, upbeat and you could tell he genuinely cared about us being happy, having fun, and getting great photos. We got married in Miami on 8/12/17, which had to be one of the hottest days in history (or so it felt), and despite being soaked in sweat after busting his ass for 12 hours straight, he never complained or stopped giving us his all. At the end of the night, it felt like we’d known Jan our entire lives and like he was family. THAT right there is what makes him different than the rest; truly one-of-a-kind. After only one day of meeting with us, he knew what and who was important to us. He read the crowd and knew how to get people to react for the camera. All of our guests were captured in a natural way, and we have some of the best photographic memories to enjoy for the rest of our lives. I’m a very picky person when it comes to photos, but Jan worked closely with me to make sure I was happy. Even though he has a million other clients, he made sure I had his full and undivided attention. He is truly a magician with a camera and an overall wonderful person and professional. We look forward to working together again sometime in the future and definitely recommend him for whatever your photography needs may be. High quality..high class..highly recommend! – The Mays

I got married in February and only planned my wedding in 2 months, Jan was super helpful in meeting up with me several times before and ensuring that this will be the most spectacular wedding, which it was. My husband hates to take photos, he quickly gets impatient but with Jan it was different. His vision for the shots didn’t make my husband bored and we actually had so much fun for our first look. The photos came out so beautiful we were shocked! We had a really hard time to choose the photos that we wanted for our album since they were all amazing. Thank you Jan and his team!!!

Wow! As A Wedding Planner, I Can Certainly Admit Jan Was Such A Pleasure To Work With Along The Wedding Planning Process And Especially On The Wedding Day! His Energy, Professionalism, and Charisma Are Amazing And His Work Is Incredible! 5 Stars And Beyond For Jan and His Freire Wedding Photo Team!

How can we possibly thank Jan for helping us celebrate one of the most important days in our lives? Leading up to the wedding, our photographer, who we booked 1.5 years in advance (!) and who had done our engagement photos, suddenly backed out of our wedding. To say we were disappointed was an understatement, but that’s when we were introduced to Jan. My husband and I loved his upbeat personality and true talent as we looked at picture after picture in his portfolio. He is an absolutely amazing photographer! Lucky us that he shared his talents with us!! After an amazing day, we couldn’t wait to see them – and a week later we got a sneak peek and loved every one of them. The pictures were fun, energetic, and professional. The rest have just come through and I’m having trouble picking my favorites! Thank you Jan for stepping in and documenting memories for a lifetime!!
You’re the best!

When planning a wedding the three things you need to make or break your wedding is, Dj, venue, and photographer. My mom and I searched high and low for the perfect photographer. She stumbled across Jan’s website. When I looked at his website I said to myself there is no way someone can capture pics like this, these are awesome, they look like editorial photos from a fashion magazine.
When Jan arrived, he was super professional, and a risk-taker. The pictures came out AMAZING. We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer! Please please please, do yourself a favor and hire Jan for your next event.

Jan’s pictures should be magazine covers!!!! They are incredible!!! I can’t even tell you how impressed we are!!! He is a true artist!!! Very, very talented!!!! You could tell from the start he wasn’t your typical photographer where you have to tell him what pictures you want. I felt so comfortable surrendering all photo control to him on my wedding day, knowing he would know when the light was perfect and the setting was just right!! I can not say enough great things about having Jan shoot our beach wedding. I only regret I won’t have another wedding to hire him for again!

Christie Rose

Working with Jan was just fun! It was like meeting an old friend and have a good time together. He was very professional and managed to let us feel like “models” for an hour.
We are totally happy with the pictures of our wedding vow renewal. Thanks again and see you in 10 years

Melanie Röser

Jan made an amazing job! He was super active, imaginative, and creative. Thank you dear for a great job! We loved your passion, your desire to basically jump on the floor in order to get the best shot! And our Wedding pictures were ready on time!

Nadya Gribanova

Jan is one of the best out there. He knows how to get the perfect shot, and will do whatever it takes to get it! We are IN LOVE with our photos! He was even able to get pictures that we had no idea he was taking until after we got our photos back. Such amazing candid and special shots of me and my husband, friends, and family. We’ll never forget our special day- and we are so thankful Jan was able to capture our bliss and happiness.

Stephanie Whitney

Jan loves what he does and it shows in his work! He spends lots of time getting to know you and he makes you feel relaxed because he has a great eye for what will work. He is professional, responsive and you will love working with him! Most of all, you will love your photos!

Arlene Goldman

We were so lucky to have a friend who recommended Jan’s amazing work. Jan photographed our wedding in Miami and did a fabulous job capturing beautiful moments! Even though we had a lot of bridesmaids and groomsmen, he navigated our big group like a pro, getting everyone’s poses and smiles perfectly for the photos. He is hard-working and clearly loves what he does! He went out of his way to get the perfect shots – he even helped carry me (the bride) up the stairs for photos because I couldn’t manage it on my own in my elaborate wedding sari. I’m so glad he was our wedding photographer and you just check out his work – he even does amazing individual photo shoots. Five stars Jan, you are the best wedding photographer in Miami!

Freire’s photography style is intricate and has a clean sophisticated look. If it is lingerie, Art nude, weddings, or landscape. His work always looks super classy and sleek. Enjoyed working with him.

Nat Yesufu

Your photos blow me away every single time I see them! This is one of the most beautiful shots I have ever seen, wow!!
