About Us

1000 Words Photography is husband and wife team Tom & Leona (Lee) Burke based out of the San Francisco Bay Area. We are primarily wedding photographers, but do offer all kinds of other photography as well. We've been working together since 1996 and have photographed hundreds of couples weddings. We don't think you can define our style as anything specific, we use a combination of styles to create what we hope is a uniqe perspective. To see a greater representation of our photography be sure to check out the galleries on our website.
Our personalities are loose and playful, we love photographing weddings and really want our clients to have a great time on one of the biggest days of their lives. We work very hard to come up with images that will make you say "I was there and I don't remember it being like that". Wedding photography is different than most other services at a wedding because for the images to look awesome, there needs to be a good working relationship between us and the couple. We're there all day with you so there needs to be a level of comfort and trust. Over the months leading up to a wedding we typically have developed a close relationship with our couples. We still stay in touch with most of our couples and are through the different stages of life (the wedding, children, homes, job changes..). When we book a client many times we are gaining lifelong friends and that is a pretty cool thing.

June 8th at The Wood Ranch  


This past Saturday we had the absolute pleasure of photographing JP & Kathy's wedding at the Wood Ranch in Clayton http://www.thewoodranch.com/ . The Wood Ranch is a private residence out in the country on 5 acres. The grounds are immaculate and the landscaping is beautiful. JP & Kathy had complete access to the whole property. Lee & I heard a lot of people saying "If I lived here I would never leave".....it is THAT COOL. We'd love to work there every weekend.

Kathy was as beautiful as ever and her smile and laugh very infectious. JP was smooth as always, cracking jokes all day long. There were about 150 guests and we really got the feeling that there was a lot of love present.

Steve from Mark Welch Entertainment http://www.markwelchentertainment.com/ was the DJ and did a great job as always. We seem to be running into him a lot lately.

We'll have their pictures posted on our website in a couple weeks, but for now here are a couple straight out of the camera.
