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!

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.

LASALLE College of the Arts has engaged Isabelle Lim 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.
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 :)
We enjoyed the photo shoot with Issy. I liked the casual approach to the shots.

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.

I’d like to express my gratitude and appreciation the great work you did on 19-20 May that have delivered high standards quality based on what I’m hoping for.
I’m happy with the results which I have no feedback which that already covered my required that focused details of myself, in actions with others, close up shots with myself and with others.
True Colours Festival
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.
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.
pianist & 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!!!
