2015 was such a great year, it was our 8th year photographing weddings together and we loved every second of it. We shot 40 amazing and beautiful weddings all over the state and country, plus lots of engagement, bridals and other sessions as well. We shot in almost 40 different cities in NC this year, shot in 10 different cities in SC, along with shooting in 9 different states. Plus we had a wonderful year of personal adventures, we visited TWENTY states this year! We bought a new car this year since we had so many miles on our old one (which was only 3 years old!). We traveled 18,000 business miles in a car this year, along with over 5,000 miles flying for business. That doesn’t even include all our personal miles we traveled either!
It wasn’t just an awesome year of traveling we hit a lot of amazing business milestones. We shot both our 125th and 150th weddings together this year, we ended the year on our 158th wedding together. We are so incredibly thankful for the 158 different wedding clients who have let us become a part of their lives and allowed us to be a part of one of the most important days of their lives.
We are so excited to see what 2016 brings and for all the amazing weddings we have already booked. We love this adventure we get to do together and wouldn’t want to do anything else!

From winning a free trip to the ProBowl in Arizona, heading to Disney probably far too many times (in March, June, July, September, and November), and going to Alaska for Heather’s 25th birthday. From weddings and sessions in Kansas, Missouri, West Virginia, South Carolina, Florida, Virginia, and Connecticut. Victoria (Walter’s sisters wedding), plus both his sister and our brother in law graduating college. Also our epic road trip visiting 13 states (North Carolina, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Ohio, Kansas, South Dakota, Missouri, Tennessee, Iowa, Nebraska, Kentucky, and Indiana) on our way out to Kansas City to photograph one of our best friend’s weddings. Plus tons of amazing memories around home, from an epic Panthers season (SUPERBOWL BOUND BABY!!), getting courtside seats to the Hornets game, finding out we are having a nephew this year, traveling to Atlanta for the Panthers game, getting a new car (and putting WAY too many miles on it already!), Heather getting her first tattoo, and getting to be extras in our first movie Max (with Lauren Graham!!). Here are some favorite instagram and snapchat moments from 2015. Follow us @heatherburks and @walterburks on both to see more this year!!
