King Street Studios' is Charleston's largest professional Wedding and Portrait Photography Studio. Their elegant, magazine style caters to discerning clients who expect the best in artistic, contemporary Wedding and Portrait Photography. Studio owner, Todd Surber, believes that editorial and cinematic style imagery create the most visually compelling and sensitive story of an event. Others agree: JuneBugWeddings.com awarded King Street Studios the coveted designation of "Worlds Best Wedding Photographer."

Todd spent years in LA and traveling the world on assignment, photographing and touring with rock stars such as Papa Roach, Buckcherry, The Cult, Blondie, and so many more. During this time he refined his talent for creating emotionally dramatic images. He believes event photography is about capturing the moment that forever leaves viewer and subject with a memory of the magic in that experience. He feels the images produced from such times help people carry the memories with them so their feelings don't ever fade.

King Street Studios is centered in the Upper King Street district of Charleston. The 1,500 sf studio is located in a 150-year-old building and exudes the character that can only come from a historic space. The high ceilings, original moulding, hard-wood floors, and large windows paired with contemporary accents and artistic flair, make you immediately feel relaxed and at home in this one-of-a kind photography studio.

Please feel free to call, email, or walk in on us anytime! Your always welcome!

We were very fortunate to have King Street Studios photograph our wedding this month. From the beginning Todd was professional, supportive, kind, understanding and had excellent communication. Several times over the course of the year leading up to our wedding, he took time out of his day to talk to me about photos and timelines when I got worried. He was always available to chat and I always got a response to e-mail communication in 24 hours or less. On the day of the wedding, Todd and Matt, as well as their sweet assistant Kelly, were extremely professional, fun to work with, flexible and so very talented! Both guys have a super laid-back attitude that’s perfect for stressed brides and preoccupied grooms and they do an outstanding job of keeping you on track and ensuring they get all the shots you asked for plus about five hundred you didn’t even think of. They also have a wonderful dynamic with your guests for group shots and got some wonderful group photos of our family and friends. Even our guests were raving about them by the reception! We received a sneak peak of over 100 photos only a week after our wedding and all of our photos less than 3 weeks after the wedding! Both Todd and Matt have incredible creative talent and my groom and I were absolutely blow away by all of the unique shots that came out of our day. Our photos are truly gorgeous and more than we ever dreamed they would be. They look like they belong in a magazine! Using King Street Studios was the best vendor decision we made and I would absolutely recommend them to any couple who wants the photos of a lifetime. Thank you so much Todd and Matt for sharing your talents with us on our wedding day! All of your professionalism, talent, hard work and dedication to your trade are clear in our photos and Brian and I will be forever grateful that you were a part of our day.

Todd and Matt did our surprise engagement photos in June of 2014. Of course we had them photograph our wedding in September 2015 as well.
We have heard nothing but amazing things about all of our photos, engagement and wedding.
We had 4 photographers at our wedding and they were all amazing and so easy to work with.
Todd let us enjoy our wedding and make a timeline that worked for us. We did not miss out on enjoying our reception due to getting photos. But, don't get me wrong, we had plenty of photos! We have not seen them all, but did get a 150 picture "sneak peak" that just made us more excited to see the rest. I can't even imagine how many pictures were taken by the 4 of them during the 10 hours that they were with us on our wedding day!
My husband and I consider Todd and Matt part of the family after having been there during 2 of the happiest days of our lives!
Thank you for everything!
Hope to see you next time we are in Charleston!

From our initial call to the very end of the reception, Todd was present, professional, fun and went out of his way to make sure we were receiving amazing service. He does not nickel and dime and seems to just care about making sure he and his assistants are providing getting great photos. He clearly enjoys what he does and it shows in his photography.

I had a less traditional wedding (on the beach) and was concerned about opportunities for good pics. Todd and his assistants took amazing photos and subtly created great photo opps. The pics are constantly receiving compliments. I could not have asked for a better experience. THANKS TODD AND CREW!

Amazing images! Photography was our number one priority when we began wedding planning, so we spent a lot of time researching and interviewing photographers in both Charleston and New York (where we live). We are so lucky Todd was available for our date! From the moment we spoke to him we knew we had found someone exceptional. Todd is just amazingly talented and passionate, not only about his craft but about sharing our story. Most importantly (particularly for my fiancé), he is just really cool and easy to get along with.

When you start researching photographers, you begin to realize that so many photos are the exact same pose over and over, nothing unique to the couple. So many photographers tout their photojournalistic style, but when you look through a complete wedding album, you find that only a handful of the images are frame-worthy. Todd was able to capture not only the spontaneous moments, but he also gave us some direction. He has an incredible eye for important things like lighting, color, and framing the shot—these are not cookie-cutter shots.

Our engagement shoot was in New York, including Central Park and Times Square. And our wedding was in Charleston. Our friends and family honestly couldn't believe the range of amazing pictures—from utterly dramatic to romantic to fun (both our moms cried). Our friends were so impressed they immediately booked King Street for their wedding.

After getting to know Todd very well through such an intimate process we really cannot recommend Todd and his team enough. He has gone above and beyond in so many ways. This was the one part of the wedding that I knew I just didn't need to worry about. I didn't even try to put together a shot list because I knew I could trust him to manage our bridal party and family and to capture everything flawlessly. The hardest part has been limiting the number of photos we hang on the wall! They're honestly all so unique and beautiful; and they truly captured the joy we felt that day!

I couldn't have been any happier with King Street Studios. Todd and his crew were professional, polite and fun to work with. Even our family commented on how professional they were at the wedding. And the pictures-- oh my, the pictures- they are AMAZING! He captured moments I didn't even remember and with such flair and creativity! I am still getting compliments on our photos! I strongly believed in getting a good photographer since after the wedding all you have left are the memories and the photos. We got more than we paid for (which he is WELL worth!) and couldn't have been more pleased. l will recommend Todd over and over again- you will not be disappointed!

I feel so blessed we were able to book Kings Street Studios for our engagement/wedding pictures. Todd and Matt were by far one of the best parts of our entire wedding experience.
Being from NY, my husband and I are used to the best, and we are fortunate to have found a wedding photographer who is by far better than any photographer we've seen in NYC. Todd's photography of Charleston is the reason I picked the city for our destination wedding. His work is stunning and inspirational for the type of wedding I wanted.
King Street's Studio photography is not your average wedding photographer. The work is not only beautiful, but extremely unique. Todd Surber has an eye that simply cannot be compared.
Beyond the photography, Todd and Matt are amazing to work with. They are so much fun to be around, and make being in front of the camera easy and natural. Seriously, him and his assistant were a blast getting to know, and so much fun at the wedding itself. However, they were always extremely professional. You could tell Todd always had a picture in the back of his mind. I would say I was an extremely difficult bride to photograph on my wedding day, as I wouldn't stay still for a picture for one moment, but it didn't phase them. We were so happy to have them come to our after-party, and we hope more than anything to see them again. We are already coming up with events in our life that will need photography, so we can work with them again.
My husband and I would give them more than 5 stars if we could. If you are blessed to book Kings Street Studios for your event or wedding, don't hesitate a moment. They are truly the best, and their work beyond.

What to say about King Street... I'm not sure I can even articulate how phenomenal they were on our wedding day.

My husband and I are from Cleveland and got married in South Carolina, so we had to pick our vendors from afar which is somewhat daunting. In addition to that, my husband is a professional photographer and was being very selective about photographers.

However, he dug in and went through several photographers websites, but stopped in his tracks when he landed on King Street Studios. He was on the phone with Todd, and before I knew it he had them booked. We didn't get to meet them until our wedding day, but we could tell instantly that they were professional, easy going, personable, and most importantly- incredibly creative people. It was really important to us that we didn't have the same wedding photos as everyone else, we wanted Todd to get creative...which we hope was as fun for him as it was us.

He certainly delivered! For one set up, we were on a 4 inch thick wall that separated a hot tub from a pool, one small slip and we would have been in the pool in our wedding dress and suit. Luckily we kept it together and didn't fall in.

Our photos turned out to be amazing, they made my mom cry all over again. They captured the fun, emotional and hilarious moments that made the day ours. We couldn't have asked for anything better.
