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 California Wedding  


This wedding happened very close to home for us in Clayton at a private estate. The home was moved from downtown Concord to Clayton and the owner grew up in the home. It was filled with lots of really cool antiques and furnishings from all over the world. It is a very cool venue for a wedding.
Cinthy & Greg were married at this estate and they had the best theme.........Alice in Wonderland. All over the estate were Mad Hatters, Crazy Cats and so much more. It was totally refreshing to have such a cool theme.
Cinthy has nannied for several children and there were lots and lots of kids at this wedding. It was so much fun playing with them. Most of the bridesmaids came in from France to be at Cinthys side. They were the most helpful and sweet bunch of bridesmaids ever. They all had different dresses were gorgeous. Cinthy's parents came in from France as well and while there were language barriers there was clearly a lot of love. Cinthy gave all of the bridesmaids cards that she had written......every single lady was brought to tears by what she had to say......so touching.
Elegant Occasions Catering took care of setting up the wedding and providing the dining for the evening. They are always so great to work with and we really appreciate other wedding vendors recommending 1000 Words Photography to Cinthy & Greg to photograph their wedding.
We hope you like the images we posted here on our blog. It was an absolute pleasure to work with such a great couple and are honored to have been chosen as their wedding photographer.
