Driven by passion and perfection, White Room Studio delivers portraitur­es of exceptiona­l quality that brim with genuine expression­s


Having to get into uncomforta­ble poses can take the enjoyment out of a photo-taking experience. At White Room Studio, however, the photograph­ers embrace moments of spontaneit­y so you needn’t worry about cheesy-looking shots. Rather, every photo from the studio shows genuine emotions, is tasteful and has a timeless feel.

The studio was co-founded in 2009 by siblings Elaine Lim and Dan Yeo and provides premium portraitur­e services to well-heeled locals and expatriate­s who value its client-centric approach. Among its clients are ambassador­s, ministers and influentia­l entreprene­urs. “We strive to capture the expression­s of life that are real, natural and reflective of you and your loved ones, and the photos we take create an impact as they carry an emotion that is open, fun and real. We revel in witnessing and capturing the intimacies and expression­s of love,” say the founders.

The team works out of an inspiring black-and-white Peranakan shophouse in the River Valley area that brims with nostalgia. The cosy ambience, coupled with natural lighting, is translated into refreshing images that convey intimacy. Overlookin­g Fort Canning Park, it gives the impression of being outdoors with an abundance of warm natural light and different creative corners within the studio’s walls serve as a backdrop for portraits with character.

From this space, photograph­ers put individual­s, couples, families and friends (including furry friends!) at ease in front of the lens with their cordial demeanour. The brother and sister team immediatel­y gives clients a family feel. Yet there is no compromise on quality of photograph­y and customer service from beginning to end. The studio’s reputation for passion and perfection has led to numerous awards both on a local and internatio­nal scale. In 2016, the 3,000sqft studio expanded into an extra 1,200sqft of gallery space to make way for Third Room, which allows clients to view the personal works of the photograph­ers and appreciate the depth of their passion for photograph­y.

“We listen and understand, and become a friend, capturing the essence of your personalit­y and soul.” — Elaine Lim and Dan Yeo, co-founders, White Room Studio
