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.

Discovery Bay Country Club: Wedding  


We kicked off our 2009 with a really nice wedding at Discovery Bay Country Club on Saturday. It was Whitney & Justen's big day and everything went off without a hitch. It was one of the rare weddings where everything was ahead of schedule....that doesn't happen. All the bridesmaids and groomsmen were there early, which made the whole day easy.
The ceremony took place inside the ballroom just in case there was some weather to contend with. It rained the day before, but was beautiful on Saturday....little cold...but given the alternative we all felt lucky. The line of the day was given by the minister during the ceremony when he told Justen that he was joining the club of "marrying way over your head".
Jeff from Amos Productions was the emcee and did a great job as always....kind of a recurring theme with our blog posts......Amos Productions Rocks! We love getting to work with them. They are the most professional and play really good music.
This group had a very interesting characteristic...that is during the Anniversary Dance (where the call out everyone married 1 year, 5 years......until there is only one couple left)...Jeff kept calling out numbers and there wasn't a dent made in the dance floor until he got to 30 years. There were a lot of people who had stayed married for a long time.
We hope you like the pictures.
