We enjoyed Isabelle’s presence very much – it was positive and focused. We also respect the way she works – unafraid, systematic, and again, in a very focused fashion. She spent time planning her shots, playing with unusual angles and perspectives, and often, quietly removing obstacles by herself, so as not to inconvenience anyone.
...They are creatively shot, beautiful images that capture engagement, quiet moments and authenticity.
Paul Russell Director of Calamity Studio
I was totally impressed by her natural eye for a good shot. As a former professional photographer myself, it was easy to see that she can spot the opportunities for a good image, and put herself in the right place and the right time to get some great images. Her sense of proportion and balance shows a raw natural talent and appreciation of light and shadow, as well as occasion.

Isabelle has an eye for photography and a flair to capture photos that bring out the emotions. Even during a hectic event, she always manages to take good interaction shots. Isabelle is also able to deliver the photos on time to meet our requirements.

Issy's good natured honest style and the opportunity to work with someone specially abled.
Michelle SgP Singer, songwriter, pianist and arranger
Issy's team were amazing and professional for both of my shows. They went the extra mile to drop by rehearsals and arrange a meeting on what I wanted captured. Had a hunch Issy would not disappoint. Indeed the results were expected, and beyond!
Given Issy's visual eye and heightened ability to detect emotion visually, we saw this translated in the photos. Beautiful. Soulful. That's what we got with Issy's unique gift!! Thank you!!!

LASALLE College of the Arts has engaged Isabelle on numerous occasions to document events and the results are always stunning. She is adept at capturing her subjects in the moment at flattering angles (be it engaged in conversation or in deep concentration on a task), and this leads to great story-telling after when we pair copy with photos. When coupled with her professionalism and efficiency, Isabelle is a real joy to work with. You are perfect the way you are! :)
Professor Steve Dixon President of LASALLE College of the Arts
LASALLE College of the Arts has engaged Isabelle as an event photographer since 2015, when she was in her second year as a Diploma in Fine Arts student. She has an artist's eye for detail, sensitivity and attentiveness to the individual demands of each shoot, and a knack for capturing candid moments between people.
These skills manifest in photographs that are emotive, don't shy away from unique and surprising angles, and yet are subtle and pleasing to the eye. She has shot important institutional events including Convocation 2018 and 2019, Open House 2019, the School of Contemporary Music Festival at the Esplanade, and the 13th Asian Cinema Society Studies Conference. In addition to her artistic skills, we have consistently found her to be quick and responsive to our requests. She is a highly gifted photographer who approaches every shoot with great enthusiasm and professionalism.

I really liked some of the candid moments that you captured of individuals. They captured the essence of our event.

Apart from the obvious passion you have for photography, you have an extra-ordinary and somewhat mysterious relationship with every one you aim your lens at. Without your subjects being aware, you capture flickering moments of emotions that are so genuine. Whilst your posed shots are terrific (super-excited jumping golfers!), I feel you capture the human essence best; you make feelings come alive and then freeze them. You're a shooting star! Keep doing it! Would love to see your portrait shots :)

The pictures speak for themselves! We had such a relaxing shoot, just being ourselves and Issy was sharp in reading our facial expressions and body language! The photos weren’t your usual studio-like shots but told a story of our relationships with each and as a family. Thank you so much Issy. We will treasure these precious pictures! - Kathy Ooi
We have a tradition of capturing family portraits before important life milestones and have tried different photographers but I must say the one that captured us best is our family friend, Issy. - Prof Lucien Ooi

We love the photos very much! Issy managed to capture the candid moments of the interactions between us so well! She is very dedicated to her craft, where she went checking out the best spot & time to be at Botanic garden as well as advising us with our outfits. It's our second time doing our family photo shoot with her, and we are very pleased with the photos taken each time.

It was a great experience with Isabelle and her Mum as not only we had fun, we also enjoyed getting to know them better. They were prompt in giving us mosquito repellant and portable fan when we appeared uncomfortable. We really appreciate their care. I love some of the photos where Isabelle captured our candid moments where we can reminisce the good old times. Thank you so much Isabelle & Jac! She offered her service to me and I'm glad she did. Thank you once again! :)
Gwendolyn and Gerald

Taking time to catch moments and not rushing through.
Isabelle was a professional photographer with amazing skills to execute what we wanted. Our graduation photoshoot theme was recreating photos from an event that happened 4 years ago where we all first became friends, and Isabelle took the time to recce the venue and come up with ideas that allowed us to recreate the photos while adding more sophistication that matched with the occasion of the group photoshoot.
One of the strengths that Isabelle has is her flexibility in working with people who have not done photoshoots. Our group was big (14 people), and the majority of them have not done any sort of group photoshoots before, but Isabelle knew how to provide instructions, and bring out everyone’s natural expressions.
In addition, Isabelle constantly provides creative ways to make the photos unique. During our photo shoot, she came up with new and creative ways to work around the situation (i.e. Use the nearby hawker centre as a photoshoot venue) when we encountered a thunderstorm and was not able to continue the shoot outdoors.
Really enjoyed every single moment of the shoot as well as the outcome of all the photos :)
