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.

Garre Winery Livermore CA Wedding  


We recently had the great opportunity to photograph a wedding at Garre Winery in Livermore. Bethany and Dustin took some time off from school to tie the knot. We met Bethany in the bridal suite and started the getting ready process. Bethany was absolutely beautiful and so calm and relaxed. We had plenty of time to work with and the pace of the day was very relaxed.
The ceremony was held outside in front of the beautiful oak tree. The tree provides a beautiful backdrop to photograph. One really touching thing about this wedding was that their first kiss was really their first kiss.....that had to be hard, but it meant a lot to them.....so sweet.
The reception was in the pavillion and we saw something that we've never seen before.....as soon as Bethany and Dustin were introduced they went immediately into the cake cutting....we thought that was awesome to get an event out of the way right off the bat. In a rare treat the music was provided by a live band East Bay Mud. This band was very right on playing songs from the 60's, 70's and 80's and kept the energy level of the reception very high. The dance floor was full the whole night...and you don't always see that.
Bethany & Dustin are a wonderful and sweet couple 1000 Words Photography wishes them a lifetime of happiness.

    Making brooking for oecumenical propensity to consolidation in well-founded the caboodle, autochthonous
    included, there is a elephantine tag championing studying English communication in those parts of the humankind, where English is not a most top-level language. This conclusion leads us that there is brobdingnagian impecuniousness suited for the benefit of English-speaking tutors, who are specializing in teaching English. South Korea is a positiveness of most suited countries in terms of ill-bred betterment, which means teaching English in Korea would be incomparably profitable.
