DELEGATE: Tell us more about yourself!

I’m Daniel Sim as my brand implies haha.. I play the drums, guitar and I love to travel!

D: What is the vision/mission for your company?

To always be improving in my craft & services for my couples at any point in my career.singapore wedding photographer daniel sim photographyD: How did you start your business? What were some adversities when you first started out?

I started 2 years back when I got more client requests through word of mouth. I was very encouraged and grateful for their trust in me to deliver. It’s a once in a lifetime event, so it could make or break me.

D: Any trade secrets you can reveal?

The secret is that – there is no secret…*cue dramatic music*. Each photographer out there has put in time, effort and continually work on themselves. I guess a tip is to learn from those that are already at the top of their game.
Caleb Fon Actual Day Wedding Singapore Swissotel-0001-2D: Most memorable experience since starting your business?

Most memorable experience was knowing that I was mindful enough to have captured photo memories of the couple with the bride’s grandmother. Sadly she passed on but she was thankful for the photos that will now last forever.

D: What is one thing you would like customers to know about your company?

We are never static. Our style, skill-sets and services are always changing, improving and adapting to what couples desire of their wedding day. We zoom in and focus on delivering our best.

D: What was your first job?
I sold guitars at a local music shop!

D: What aspects of your personality can we see in your work?

My photojournalistic style yet focusing right into the emotions of moments. I am quite the introvert and enjoy time on my own but I also get excited when I get to capture a couple’s most important day(yet) I always tell myself – to be a storyteller first, a photographer second. That has since become my slogan of sorts 🙂

D: What is one thing people don’t know about you?

I was in Drama club back in secondary school! I am a natural in front and behind of a camera hahaa.. just kidding.

D: How would you describe your personal style?

I’m pretty practical in the sense of daily living. I spend my time/money on what I love like travelling. I don’t spend time worrying about what others think or say about me or what I’m doing. Because at the end of the day, you are accountable for your own life.

bridesmaids-bride-march-black-white-classy-henderson-waveD: What are your hobbies and passion outside of work?

I love music, food, a good cuppa coffee and of course exploring the next country that I’ve not been to!

D: Which habits of yours have gotten you to where you are today?

I guess it’s my perseverance. I knew in my heart what I wanted to do and I just gave my all to pursue it. It also helps to have supportive family and friends though.couple-diamond-rings-wedding-marriageD: How do you spend your weekends/free time?

I usually spend time binge watching movies/tv series. I draw inspiration from different visual mediums as well so these are times I enjoy their stories while “learning” from the Hollywood pros.

D: Any future plans in the pipeline?

I am starting to shoot overseas pre-weddings, in Bangkok & Korea. I wish to embark on more of these types of shoots and adventures! Capturing beautiful images while travelling? Dream come true.

My Dad, he always believed in me even when I doubted myself. Not just when I was starting out, even now, I’ll talk to him about business and see where and how I can improve things.

one of the most important decisions of my life.
