Lakes residents open Sureel Photography Studio

Community By R.A. Romero, The Miami Laker staff Friday, October 4, 2013


In a market saturated with amateur photographers, Miami Lakes residents Sergio Freay and his wife Elizabeth, owners of Sureel Photography Studio, bring over 25 years of experience to potential clients. Sureel Photography Studio, tucked between AT&T and The Broadcast Center on Main Street in Miami Lakes, is hosting a grand opening celebration on Saturday, October 5. 

The studio's grand opening will include a raffle for a free photography package that normally retails for $300. A free 8X10 photograph and 30 percent discount will also be given to those who sign-up for the emailing list on-site.  

Sergio Freay first became interested in the industry after taking a high school course on photography, and his wife has always had a passion for working with children.  

"We decided to follow our passions," said Freay. 

They combined their pursuits to create Sureel Photography and have been photographing on-location until acquiring studio space in Main Street. They now offer studio portraits in addition to their on-location photography. 

Sureel Photography encompasses maternity shoots, newborns, engagements, weddings, head-shots, portraits for individuals, families, and children, real estate, sports, quinces, senior photos, and special events among others. Sureel Photography also offers graphic design services and videography. 

Make-up artists and stylists are available upon request for photo shoots.  

"I came from the days of negatives and dark rooms," said Freay. "I've gone from the dark room to the computer. Photography is a combination of knowing how to manipulate the lighting and settings and knowing how to enhance shots on programs like Photoshop and Illustrator. It can't be just one or the other and that's what sets us apart. We built on what we learned back then and combine it with new media." 

Sureel Photography Studio is open Wednesdays through Sundays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 6820 Main Street, Miami Lakes.
