When Todd Surber's parents incorrectly loaded film into their camera on the day of his high-school graduation, they left their son without any pictures to document his achievement. These days, at King Street Studios, Todd ensures that similar special moments are never lost for his clients. He snaps shots of families, weddings, clown troupes, and high-school seniors with a photojournalistic style honed from touring with top rock bands such as Papa Roach. After sessions on location or in Todd’s 1,500-square-foot boutique studio, patrons can choose their most beloved memories in an online proofing gallery of retouched color or black-and-white images. Todd also invites customers to view their canvas portraits in the studio’s projection room so they can see how the pictures will appear when enlarged to their appropriate size.
Betty Lilly opened Frame Up in 1977 to preserve the cherished photos and artwork of her clientele. Three years later, she handed over ownership to her daughter Denise Mosimann, who has held the custom-framed reigns of the family business ever since. Today, the framing professional and her staff will meet one-on-one with customers to customize jobs and update already framed items, selecting from the troves of mats and multicolored mouldings housed within the onsite framing facility. The preservation pros take as little as one day (depending on availability) to protect photos, diplomas, and the promo posters of successful home movies behind museum-quality glass. Frame Up also specializes in selling local and wildlife artwork, including prints from John James Audubon's Birds of America.
