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.

Blackhawk Country Club Wedding  

1 comments
















Hey YO............here is a reallly cool wedding. The ceremony was at St. Isadores in Danville, CA. Super nice ceremony.............full Catholic mass.............as a wedding photographer a full Catholic mass makes thing a little easier because we grew up Catholic..............and know the drills pretty flewintly..................we know where to be and when to be there...........by repitition.
But the reception was wehre the part was..........Blackhawk Country Club is an amazing place to work at...........and people came from all over to be there. We are on the West Coast.....and it seemed like most people came from New Yersey and beyond.
Caitlin and Stefan were surely loved by a lot of people............they had something like 200 guests.........CRAZY.....but soooo cool.
Jeff Torres from Amos Productions was the master of ceremonies..........and he totally rocked the house. We get nothing for it............but.....in our humble opinion Amos Productions is the best DJ company in the San Francisco Bay Area. They play the best music....(if you've been to enough weddings you know that the same go-to's are brutal). No chicken dance or anything like that.....just professional &VERY COOL
We think we got some CRAZY COOL shots..........but that is up for you to decide........let us know what you think.....REALLY.
Peace & Love
T&L
