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 Francisco Wedding at Hotel Vitale  


This wedding was unique in that it was held on the roof of the Hotel Vitale on the Embarcadero in San Francisco....during Fleet Week. The ceremony was at 4pm after the Blue Angels were done...but before that we were all treated to a great air show. The jets were flying all around us and all of our necks were turning back and forth because you never knew where they were coming from.

Aside from the air show, the setting was beautiful. On the roof of the hotel were views of the Bay Bridge, the Ferry Building, the Embarcadero, the Transamerica Building and more.....absolutely spectacular.

We hope you enjoy a few of the photographs from the day.
