Elle Jae Weddings is comprised of Lisa & James, a husband / wife team.
James began his photographic career after obtaining a BFA in Photograhy in 1993. He spent several years in Los Angeles working in commercial studios shooting mostly swim wear, dance 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.
Working together or separately James & James devote themselves to their client's weddings. They strive to capture candid emotion, thorough narrative and wonderful details for every bride and groom.

James was so great to work with! He took amazing photos and really captured the spirit of our wedding. Day of, James was very flexible, professional, quick with taking photos, and unobtrusive. Photos were delivered promptly afterwards. Could not be happier with James' beautiful work!Sent on 07/28/2018

We met with James of Elle Jae in September 2012 during our wedding planning and we knew right away we made the right choice. We found them online through wedding websites and upon review of their work, we knew they had the aesthetic feel we were looking for. By July 2013, James and Lisa were there to shoot our destination wedding at the Garden Pavilion in Sonoma, CA. They are so talented and were such a delight to work with. They made us feel comfortable in front of the camera and I think it shows because our photos are just gorgeous. All our family and friends are raving about the moments they captured and how nice they were throughout the whole day. Photographs are the one thing you really take home with you after an amazing wedding celebration and we are so happy we picked Elle Jae! They are amazing photographers!!Sent on 08/07/2013
