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.

Taber Ranch Wedding of Katie & AJ  


We got the chance to go back to the Taber Ranch near Cache Creek last month. It's a little drive for us, but we love going up there because it is a crazy cool place with lots of photographic opportunities for us. On top of being a cool and different place to work, Kim and Diane are absolutely great to work with. They make sure your wedding experience is awesome.

The ceremony is on top of a big hill overlooking the beautiful Cape Valley. The ranch has two red Cadillac Seville's that they use to transport guests up the hill.....and they are also used to bring the bride up, which makes for a pretty dramatic entrance.

Katie & AJ are a great couple.....AJ is a freakin' laugh riot....so hilarious. We were a little squeezed on time for pictures...but they were game for anything and made some time for us after dinner for some more pictures. In the end we had a great time working for such a nice couple and working at one of our favorite places.

We hope you enjoy the few pictures we posted.
