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.

San Rafael wedding of Syrrus & Garrett  


This wedding is from July 19th when 1000 Words Photography went to San Rafael to photograph Syrrus & Garrett's wedding. The couple lives in Houston but grew up here in the San Francisco Bay Area and came to California for their wedding. Lee & I split up to cover the getting ready shots (they were right down the hall from each other). We don't usually spend a whole lot of time with grooms getting ready, but this day it worked. So Garrett is a college Philosophy teacher and is studying to get his PHD is Bio Ethics......what the heck is that? I think it has to do with issues of morality & law in cases like stem cell research. Anyway, Garrett is one of the most insanely intelligent people I've ever met.....one of his groomsmen commented that you NEVER want to get in a debate with him, because there is no way to win...he's that good.

We don't get to photograph too many weddings in Marin County and it was a nice to be able to work there. It is so nice over there. This was I think the only vegan reception we'd ever been to...we're not vegan...but it was a refreshing change of pace. Syrrus planned the whole wedding from out of town/online....nicely done.

We hope you like the shots we posted.
