Direct objects for people?

For saying "He sees her" is know "la ve" is acceptable and so is "Él la ve a ella." I was wrote "Él ve a ella" and was marked as wrong? Is this technically incorrect, is it something that a native speaker wouldn't say? Or am I in the clear?

'Él ve a ella' is correct. However, from observation, Spanish speakers tend to prefer direct or indirect object pronouns over the personal pronouns (probably because it's shorter in sentence constructions); and hence, 'Él la ve'.
