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.

Clayton Engagement Session  


Here are some shots from an engagement session we did last week. Really cool couple that were referred to us from past clients (thank you Rick & Kristine). Meghan & Bradley are getting married in September at her folks home on the Concord/Clayton border. The session gave me a chance to check out the home and get some ideas. We went from the parents home down the backroads of Clayton to the Wood Ranch, which is one of our favorite wedding venues. We got to see Lori & Steve who are such nice people. They let Meghan & Bradley bring their horses over to their property for the session. It was fun having the horses there, but you never know how they are going to react....for the most part they were easy to work with. I couldn't get over how beautiful Meghan's horse is...truely a magnificent creature. We went around the property and shot for about an hour and came up with some pretty cool shots (we hope you think so too!).
