Light filled, romantic and fun wedding photography by Lady Bella
Hello again! If you are just landing here my name is Sarah-Jane. I’m a multiple award winning photographer, hair and makeup artist. Yep! I am 34 and been studying the all things creative arts since I left school. I have been servicing high end weddings in Byron Bay and the Tweed Coast for the past 10 years!
This unique perspective means you have a personal stylist by your side all day! Tears, wind or humidly = no problem. I have a touchup kit in my camera bag ;P
If you jump on Instagram and watch a few videos you’ll get a good feel for who I am 🙂 I am bubbly, fun-loving with a positive outlook. I have two beautiful girls – Sophia (9) and Isabella (3), two dogs and a few chickens! Most days you’ll find me barefoot covered in sand!
I have a background in the fashion industry and project management. Working with brands like Billabong, Cotton On Body and published regularly in magazines. I am devoted in my craft and enrol into professional development every year. I have been awarded 2017 Young Entrepreneur and 2016 + 2019 Business Excellence in Personal and Retail Services. Just to name a few notable successes in my wedding industry journey 🙂 It’s safe to say, you are in trusted hands!
I thrive in fast paced wedding environments. I adore connecting with people and kids love me ;P In my previous career I was a project manager and this REALLY comes in handy when you are directing up to 150 people who are drinking… it’s like herding cats haha. I’ve got you!
I am supported by an amazing team. You can book me for just wedding photography or add your bridal parties hair and makeup (20% group discount). You will have one team with the same vision that translates in person and on camera. Your wedding day timeline will be calm with one team.
There are so many talented wedding professionals out there. I pride myself on my ability to connect with people in an authentic manner. I have a very healthy sense of humour and kids love my energy 🙂 I find people open up about their life journey with me and this allows me to capture their story.
I’m not afraid to guide you to look your best – chasing light and flattering angles! I will guide you through direction posing cues. The process is REALLY fun! Every Groom will start with “I Hate Photos!” and by the end they always comment on how easy, fun and memorable the experience was 🙂
Ohhhh and I make sure to deliver a sneak peek collection of 10-20 x images to you WITHIN 24hours of your event! You will be on such a high and I know you want those breathtaking images to share on social media.
Sound like we will get along? Connect below and let’s capture your wedding journey!
Wedding Collections from $2250
My collections start at $2250 for 5hrs coverage: Bridal preparation through to the start of dinner or sunset in Summer. Winter and Summer timelines will be different due to sunset times. You can upgrade to a full day coverage with two photographers from $3500.
The real magic is your newly-wed portraits capture during “Golden Light”. This is that yummy, flattering light 15-30mins before sunset. I will work closely with you on your timeline – always chasing beautiful light!
On the day, the project manager in me will easily adapt to any changes. It might be the weather or delays due to guests. I will make it work. The focus if on you both being in the moment and enjoy your day. There will be a nice mixture of beautiful portraits, candids with guests and lot’s of laughter!

- Sneak peek collection of images within 24 hours
- Sunset or sunrise engagement session

We service Byron Bay, Tweed Coast, Tweed Hinterlands and South Gold Coast regions. For a small travel fee we can travel to Brisbane and Overseas.
We have a simple online booking process! We will send you a quote via our online booking system. It takes 2mins to complete. We require a non-refundable $500 retainer to secure your wedding date for photography. $1000 for photography, hair and makeup collections.
New industry standard is delivering all of your high resolution images via an online gallery. This means you get immediate access! It’s backed up on the Cloud and password protected. You can easily share the link with loved ones, download, order prints and products or share directly to social media. IF you would prefer a USB we have some in stock. They tend to get lost so we will still send you an online gallery.
Every couple will want something different. We don’t include prints or products in our collections. This is an La Carte process. We can show you samples in our studio and all ordering can be made online.
90% of my couples are travelling into the area! I have system in place so you can do everything online. I know you are busy 🙂 I am available for in person meetings, Facet Time, email and phone calls. I highly recommend an engagement session before your wedding date. This is a great way for us to connect, you to get comfortable in front of the camera and learn directional posing cues to look your best. These are booked midweek only (weekends are fully booked with weddings).
