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.

Yosemite Engagement Session  


Last week 1000 Words Photography had the tremendous opportunity to travel to Yosemite for an engagement session. The session was scheduled for Friday so we drove up on Thursday to find that the park was pretty much empty. There was snow covering the valley floor, and the weather was amazing.

We met Karina & Chris at the Awahnee and started our session. We had mapped out a bunch of locations beforehand so that it would go smoothly. Karina & Chris we game for anything we through out there and we soooo much fun to hang around with. We spent about 2 1/2 hours with them, which is about twice as long as a usual session.....but hey...they drove 4 hours to get there and were leaving right after the session so we wanted to make it totally worth their while.
The funnest part was when Chris let Karina slam him in the head repeatedly with snowballs.
After the session was over and they headded home....we kept our cameras out and took pictures of ourselves (we have so few).
We want to thank Karina & Chris for choosing us to share in their day....it was one of the best experiences for us.
