Summit-Based Photographer Publishes Brides' Guide to Perfect Wedding

January 21, 2014 at 11:35 AM

SUMMIT, NJ - Wedding photographer Peter Kleinschmidt of Peter Wallburg Studios in Summit has published a new book -- drawn from the experiences of real life brides -- to help countless brides-to-be in fulfilling their lifelong dream of having the perfect wedding day.

Entitled “My Brides - A Photographer’s Story” the book reveals the ins and outs of photographing weddings, laden with practical information.

“I have a collection of reality-tested tips and tricks, dos and don’ts that will make any bride’s life easier.  I am going sharing that advice with you in the pages of this book,” reveals Kleinschmidt. “This guide will help you create your wedding day; by empowering you with the knowledge you need to have a happy and perfect wedding (or as close to a perfect) day as is possible.”

Kleinschmidt believes he is one of the world’s biggest wedding fans, which is partially evident when he constantly refers to brides as “My Brides.”  He has been photographing weddings for years, not because he has to (he runs a portrait studio), but because he is admits he is an old romantic and loves weddings.  His book is a glimpse behind the scenes at weddings to help brides make decisions that will result into the wedding day of their dreams.

Kleinschmidt is a New York City native, who moved to New Jersey over a dozen years ago to take over Peter Wallburg Studios in Summit, a 50-year-old family-run portrait studio, with his son Justin and himself.  His love for photography began when he was 12 years old, and has never ended.

"My Brides - A Photographer's Story", is available in both paperback and hardcover, with the paperback version priced at $19.99, and the hardcover at $29.99.  Visit for more information.  Peter Wallburg Studios website can be found at
