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.

San Francisco Engagement Session  


Here's another engagement session at the Palace of Fine Arts/Crissy Field. Valeria & Jared are getting married in November so we went to the city and had a great time with them. This time of year you are rolling the dice wheather or not the Golden Gate Bridge will actually be visable....uhhh last Sunday.....not so much. San Francisco is only about 30 minutes from where we live, but it seems further. We always love being in San Francisco, it seems no matter what the weather is doing it has so much to offer, and has such great energy.

Okay, not a lot to say on this post.....but we hope you like the pictures.
