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.

Palm Event Center:Weddings  


One of the venues that we get to work at more than others is the Palm Event Center in Pleasanton. Last year we photographed 40 weddings and 10 of them were at the Palm....kinda crazy ratio.
It is next to Mitchell Katz Winery and is a great place to work. While it the area around it is a little small there are a ton of opportunities from the driveway to the vineyards and the buildings. A lot of our "homerun" pictures come from the Palm Event Center.
Aside from the really cool grounds, the staff is crazy good. Clay and Monique make your wedding unforgettable....and you don't have to worry about a single detail. The meals are catered by Beets Catering........and if we can say they are the best....PERIOD.....we always look forward to working at the Palm Event Center not only because it is a great place....but the food is fantastic.
1000 Words Photography highly, highly, highly recommends this venue for your wedding.
Below are some shots we've taken over the past year or so from the Palm. We hope you enjoy them.
