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.

Baby Pictures  


Hi Everyone,
Been a while since our last post. I'm not gonna lie, the economy has been really rough on us. We have focused mainly on wedding photography over the years. When everything fell apart with the economy people started really cutting back on their wedding planning. People are having to make due with less or not at all. While we consistently get comments like "those are the best wedding pictures I've ever seen", "you guys are so professional", "I'm so happy we chose 1000 Words Photography"........our business has been hurt. We can't really complain because we know that there are so many Americans really suffering, and in the end we have been blessed with amazing family and friends. We've had several couples who have been laid off and have experienced the same troubles that so many others have.

So we have begun to branch out into other areas like corporate event photography, baby photography, real estate photography and other areas away from weddings. This post is to highlight a session with infants.
A couple of years ago we photographed this couple's wedding at the Taber Ranch in Capay Valley near Cache Creek. Well.....a couple years later they had twins! Super exciting and the babies are adorable. They were only two weeks old when we got the opportunity to photograph them. It was pretty fun. Lee was a big help with the posing and working with props. It is a whole other world compared to wedding photography. Kind of fun.....we hope you like the images we are sharing her.

    Simply, it is not really difficult finding watches whether
    it is for routine usage or for party or special
    occasions. With the advent of the digital age,
    a lot of processes have been digitized. Another watch tipped
