"My daughter, Olivia, researched photographers in Hilton Head, Savannah and Charleston, combing over numerous websites. She decided to have her senior pictures taken by Todd of King Street Studios. It was a very positive experience for both of us.
First and foremost, Todd is extremely talented and creative. His demeanor is kind and he put my daughter at ease right away, which resulted in amazing pictures right from the start. The photo shoot included both traditional Charleston architecture backgrounds along with fresh, urban shots. There was great diversity, as well, with close-ups, poses, and backgrounds during the shoot. He instinctively knew exactly how to coach Olivia on how to place a hand, or tilt her head in order to maximize the shot. Walking down the Charleston streets, he clearly has an eye for backgrounds that suited Olivia and the outfit she was wearing. Todd also brought assistants during the shoot, who were helpful with lighting and details. As a result, we had hundreds of stunning photos to choose from.
Additionally, King Street Studios was a pleasure to work with on a business level. Todd was responsive by phone and email. He was prompt and prepared. Our photos were ready for viewing just a few days following the shoot. Editing and ordering were convenient, and the pricing was reasonable - especially for this level of quality. This is a very professional organization.
When Olivia stated that she wanted to have senior photos taken, I honestly thought that it may have been frivolous considering that her school photo was adequate. I am so pleased that we had these done with Todd. It was such fun day that made Olivia feel special and beautiful. And now we have these remarkable, professional photos of my daughter that captured an amazing memory and a wonderful time in her life."
"I can't recommend King Street Studios highly enough. I have now used Todd and his team twice - once for professional business portraits and again to take a series of family holiday card shots. These guys are pros. Not only are they exceptionally talented artists - the pictures were amazing - but they made both me and my family feel incredibly comfortable and well cared for throughout the experience. And to make it even better, they come to you! Their mobile studio saved us money, time and hassle. I recommend King Street highly and plan to use them again."

"During the Thanksgiving weekend, my entire family consisting of our four sons, three awesome daughters-in-law, two granddaughters (a third on the way) and two grandsons traveled via plane and vehicle from Laguna Beach, CA and Montoursville, PA to Charleston for the purpose of celebrating Thanksgiving together. As a surprise for my wife, our daughter-in-law from CA wanted to surprise us with a family photo. One of the girls "raided"my wife's closet to choose appropriate "photo attire".
My wife, Karen, had surprises for each each other as well - sailing for the guys and painting for the girls. A huge problem occurred as the photo was to be taken on the same day as the sailing charter. The team at King Street Studios TOTALLY understood and graciously changed the photo shoot to Sunday (thankfully a MUCH warmer day as well!).
It's now been two weeks and I still get choked up when I see those photos. The joy and laughter that we share as a family has been captured perfectly in the images we now get to cherish for the rest of our lives. One of my sons who ALWAYS hated getting his photo taken said that he now understands how important it is to have these photos taken. From the bottom of our hearts - thank you Todd for your patience with the grandchildren and for capturing our lives so perfectly in still images.
With Much Gratefulness,
Steve and Karen Mattie

"On our recent extended family vacation, we were lucky enough to find King Street Studios on the web. The pictures on their website looked great so we took the chance and it paid off. Todd and his team were great throughout the whole process, guiding us on optimal timing of the shoot and were flexible enough to move the shoot to a different day because of inclement weather.
I'm sure working with toddlers is not the most gratifying, especially when said toddlers are having 'one of those days', but Todd and his team were really easy going and let him warm up to the camera. While the interaction was nice, the resulting pictures were even better. So happy with the results! I would recommend King Street Studios without any hesitation."

"If you are looking for brilliant photography and you’ve found Todd, then stop looking – immediately. Todd’s work is spectacular. He is easy-going, consummately professional, and he shoots incredible pictures. I needed headshots, and after describing what I had in mind, Todd took me through a 30 minute shoot. The results were spot on. The ability to take wonderful pictures is one thing. Todd can do that in spades. Just as important is his ability to listen to the client and turn out a set of photos that captures exactly what they had in mind. Turns out he’s REALLY good at that too. Thanks Todd – your work is superb."

"Wonderful photography and very professional! We recently had a family photo session with Todd that included our six month old son. The amount of patience and professionalism shown by Todd was incredible. He captured so many precious moments and was able to keep our son engaged through the whole session. We were amazed by the high quality of work and look forward to working with King Street Studios in the future!"

"My family of 5 recently had a session with Todd and the gang and we absolutely loved it!! I can’t think of a better time we’ve had taking photographs with a toddler in tow! Todd and his associates made our girls feel comfortable and at ease and like they were the most beautiful girls in the world. Upon finishing up our session, we asked the girls their thoughts and they unanimously agreed that it was the best time they’ve had taking family portraits. . . .we all agree that will return to King Street Studios the next time we take our family portraits. Thanks again, Todd and the Gang; You all went well above and beyond!"

"Great Experience! Easy location, great studio. This is the first time that I’ve never felt rushed when working with a photographer. Todd made sure that he had taken every kind of photo that we could dream of, and was even patient enough to work with our 2 crazy dogs. The hardest part was trying to pick our favorite shots… we loved them all and can’t wait to show them to our friends. Can’t wait to work with him in the future."

"Over this past Thanksgiving weekend, King Street Studios photographed our large family of 13, capturing the love, joy and personalities of each individual and of our group as a whole. It had been almost a year since our last time together so when our family flew into Charleston from Pennsylvania and California, we knew that was the perfect time to have a shoot.
Todd and his team were accommodating when we had to reschedule and they went out of their way to make our toddlers and babies (4 of them!) laugh and smile for the camera. They made us feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the entire shoot, directing us and instructing us with ease and efficiency.
Obviously, none of this would matter if the quality of the pictures was lacking. That's the best part. They are perfect. Beautiful, sharp, natural and....just perfect. Our Charleston home will be ending construction in the Spring. I can't wait to proudly display my family portraits on those brand new, freshly painted walls!"
"They are perfect. Beautiful, sharp, natural and....just perfect."
"Todd and his crew are just amazing, and we couldn’t be happier with how well our family pictures turned out and with our experience! They were so warm and welcoming, and by the end of our shoot, I felt like we’d all known each other for years. They are each very relaxed and laid-back, which is especially great for someone who is camera-shy, like myself! They were very comfortable and accommodating when working with our kids-the photographs really captured each child’s uniqueness, sense of humor, and personality without being forced or posed.
The studio is iconic Charleston, high ceilings, gracefully aging plaster, beautiful natural light, and the outdoor space has several different elements-textured plaster wall, brick wall with graffiti, palmetto trees, ect, that Todd incorporated into our pictures-they had a really funky, stylish, editorial feel that we LOVE. We absolutely love Todd’s work, and will definitely work with him again in the future!
Thanks again, Todd and crew!"

"Thank you so much for the great photo session! The photos were of the best quality that we have ever had. Honestly, you made us look much better than we really do and we thoroughly enjoyed the event! Our family thought it was the highlight of our summer. I wanted you to know that we continue to talk and remember our photo shoot with you as one of our favorite family times and we even get pictures to remember it!"

"Every step of this process was AMAZING! We went to the studio for my daughter’s senior pictures, Todd does such a great job! He made it so comfortable for her while he was taking her pictures. She had so much fun! Todd listened to what we wanted and was VERY flexible with making our appointment! After viewing our pictures online, I was absolutely amazed with the turn out, we are in love with my daughter’s pictures! Would recommend King Street Studios to anyone! Thank you Todd for being so creative, and providing us with pictures that we will treasure forever!! One more thing…thank you for treating us like it was all about us, it’s very rare in this day and time."

"I chose Todd of King Street Studios to photograph me, my husband and our six-month-old son in an effort to capture this special time in our lives. After looking at several photographers’ sites on-line, I settled on Todd due the artistic nature of his work. After working with him and seeing the results, I would definitely work with him again. His studio provided a unique, Charleston-esqe feel and he had several props and backgrounds to work with; my favorites being a few antique toys and a couple of cool, old, rich-feeling sofas. He is easy to work with and has an ability to capture the moment without making you feel too posed. The turn around time was quick, and provided me with the opportunity to linger while considering my options. All throughout, he has responded promptly to my questions and has been very helpful. I would definitely recommend Todd if the images you see on his site are your taste and style. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed."

"King Street Studios did an amazing job with our family pictures. Todd and his team spent the afternoon with us on a beautiful Fall day in downtown Charleston. They were professional, efficient, enthusiastic and very patient with our large multi-generational family. The quality of the pictures is exceptional and Todd was really able to capture the personality of our group as a whole. The photos were available only a few short days after the actual shoot and they offered complimentary touch-ups and photo shop on any images we requested. Their service has been professional and reliable through every step of the way."

"Great photos of our whole family and the individual pics were incredible! Todd was so easy to work with and immediately put everyone at ease…it’s not easy to “get to know” everyone in less than an hour and turn out pictures that we all had a hard time choosing which were our favorites. He was even able to get the Dad of the family who did NOT want to participate to smile and look completely comfortable. We had a bit of a rushed day with kids headed in different directions…we were in and out with lots of gorgeous pics in one hour. Proofs were back to us in one day and digital images all ready to go in less than a week-that’s impressive. Thanks Todd…we will recommend you to everyone we know and we’ll be back!"
