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.

Santa Barbara Engagement Session  


Last weekend we had the chance to drive down to Santa Barbara to photograph Sara & Jason's engagement session. We had never been more south on Hwy 101 than Pasa Robles, what a beautiful drive. It is nothing like going down on 5 to the LA area. It is so lush and beautiful, and Santa Barbara itself it so nice. That is one of the nice things about being a wedding photographer, we get to go to some really cool places. The weekend before we were photographing a wedding in Lake Tahoe, this weekend brought us to Southern California. Sara & Jason were really nice and bought us lunch before starting the session. We were at a super nice location that had a nice wooded area and then a short hike away was the beach.....best of both worlds. Drove back home a little while after the session making for a long day....but a real fun experience. 1000 Words Photography had a great time shooting this engagement session. We hope you like the teasers.
