From Lisa and James of Elle Jae Photography:
Elle Jae Wedding Photography is the collaboration of husband and wife team, Lisa Crawford & James Sanders. As wedding photographers, they strive to capture candid emotion, thorough narrative and wonderful details for every bride and groom.
James began his photographic career after obtaining a BFA in Photography in 1993. He spent several years in Los Angeles working in commercial studios shooting mostly swim wear, active wear and other catalog work. It didn’t take long however to grow weary of LA traffic, smog and heat, so he convinced Lisa to move north with him. In 2001, he shot his first wedding and realized that it fulfilled much of what he loves about photography – narrative, beauty, natural light and portraiture.
Lisa started coordinating weddings in 2001 and has since worked on hundreds of weddings as a planner, coordinator and designer. On New Year’s Eve of 2005, Lisa shot her first wedding with James and she found it challenging, fun and creatively exciting. Since then she and James have been shooting weddings both together and separately.
