    From the moment I met Peter I knew he was the right person to photograph our wedding. My husband John met Peter a few years ago and told him when the time came for him to get married he would contact Peter. I am so happy John did! Peter is professional, caring, understanding, and makes you feel so comfortable. It also helps that he has an amazing personality. My husband and I were able to enjoy our wedding without having to worry about a photographer follow us around and making us pose. If you want quality service, someone who is honest, and takes breathtaking photos then Peter is your guy! I cannot stop looking at our wedding photos since we got them! Thank you so much, Peter for our beautiful pictures that we will cherish forever.

    Peter is a wonderful, professional and talented photographer. He exceeds his duties as a photographer. From our initial interaction he took me under his wing and provided me with tips and suggestions that I can't think him enough for. Peter is every brides dream and angel. His staff is absolutely wonderful. And most importantly the photos and work - simply breathtaking!!!! Peter is an absolute joy to work with!!! Looking forward to having him capture all the wonderful events in my and my husbands life.

    I love, love, LOVE Peter Kleinschmidt, the photographer at Peter Wallburg studios in Summit, NJ. He was an absolute cheerleader for me for the entire period leading up to the wedding. He made me feel like I was the only bride he was seeing, in fact, the only photograph he was taking that entire year (although I know that's FAR from the truth). He never rushed, always gave plenty of options and suggestions, and gave me the most beautiful wedding pictures. I'm not a photogenic person, but Peter managed to make me look incredible in my photos. I know everyone says you never look as beautiful as you do on your wedding day, but I swear someone put in a body double because I look slim, glowing, never pale, never blinking (my photography curse!) and just plain awesome. And so does everyone else, but who cares about them, really? :)

    Despite being an outgoing and "forward" personality during our pre-wedding planning sessions, Peter managed to just disappear into the background during the wedding. Somehow he captured every moment, from the smile on my dad's face during the ceremony to the maniacal grin on my husband's just before he smooshed cake into my face, Peter got all the shots. There wasn't a single bad one in the over 300 pictures he took and yet he never posed any of us during the reception or ceremony and literally just glided around and everyone forgot he was there.

    Thank you, Peter, you rule!

    We hired this company to do a photo shoot this past weekend for my mother's 90th birthday. It was held at a prestigious golf club in Northern NJ. We had arranged this with them well in advance. We had our entire family, including children, grandchildren and guests from all over the country. The time, date and location was confirmed and set. A 50% deposit was paid.

    THEY DID NOT SHOW UP! We were unable to reach them on the day of the event No one answered the business phone or called. Two days later, the owner's excuse was that he "meant to call to reschedule." This was an event. Like a wedding. Reschedule? Really? And not even the courtesy of a phone call? Unbelievable. Worse, no one came prepared with a decent camera, since we had hired a "professional" photographer. It goes without saying that you only have a 90th birthday party once.

    Do not hire this firm.

    Peter Wallburg Studios's reply:

    This was a terrible mistake and we figured out how it happened. We had an assistant who double booked the day and time and did not write down the second booking and she soon left our company. When I called to confirm the party on Friday, my new assistant told me that our 11 AM client called and wanted me to call her on her cell. Their names were identical and they both had parties of about 30 people which led me to believe that I was speaking with the 11 AM party at Baltusrol. This other woman said that the ladies had canceled their hair appointments and they would reschedule and we left it at that.

    Seque to today when we found out the terrible mistake that was made and sincerely apologized, but we never claimed that we meant to call, we thought we had. Never in our 60 years has this happened and to say we are sorry about this incident is a gross understatement. We will do anything we can to correct this gross error at no cost even if it involves paying for hairdos and tux rentals. Again we deeply apologize and will do anything to make up for it in any way we can. We are so sorry that this has happened and if there is anything we can do we will be open to it.
