"Talented and Sincere."
A talented, sincere, and perceptive photographer.
We are truly grateful to have Leon as our wedding photographer. It was a small and intimate wedding, and Leon truly made it special and meaningful. I am an avid photographer myself, and I really needed to find someone who is sensitive to the unspoken language which exists in photography. This is a skill which Leon possesses. He is sensitive to capture these moments, and I like it because it's authentic, sincere and timely captured. There are many wedding photographers out there and they could capture the 'perfect' shots. Those pictures may look 'picture perfect' in your album, but they may not look natural. I'm not sure how to explain this in layman terms but Leon captures the natural look that we truly wanted. Not many photographers out there could do this, in my opinion.
Well, that's our preference and our personal experience with Leon.
Most importantly, what I really like about Leon is that he is flexible , highly adaptable and versatile in his approach . He is easy to work with, and through our discussions, I find a balance between both friendship, and professionalism. This is important for me, as Leon truly immerses himself in our wedding plans, and he also respects our wants and at the same time we are able to discuss things from both a photographer's point of view and our desired final outcome.
Last but not least, we are truly grateful that we not only have the wonderful photographs of our wedding, but also a true friendship. Please contact us, if you do visit Taiwan ya!

"Highly Positive Experience!"
We came across A Merry Moment's portfolio through Bridestory and were impressed with their work. We knew we had to book Petrina and Leon after reading countless great reviews about them. And everything came true to what we had read and went even better than expected!
Prior to the wedding day, Petrina had gone the extra mile by using her professional contacts to find us a good discount for a photo book. On the actual day, Petrina, Leon and Kenny (the assistant) came way in advance to prepare for the shoot. You could tell they were very relaxed and made us all feel at ease and yet they were very passionate and detailed to the point. The trio knew exactly the key people to capture without us directing them or providing any prior information. We were very happy to see many special moments captured, many that we missed as we were probably too busy to notice on that day.
We planned for an outdoor shoot after our wedding lunch and Petrina had done some pre-work and found that an event was taking place at the pre-determined location and had in mind an alternative location. Because they knew what they were doing so well, we could enjoy our big day without worrying about the sequence, etc. Everything just went extremely well and we can't thank them enough! We love the photos and the cinematic clips very much (and also the way it was presented in a momento box along with card-sized pics) In total, we met Leon and Petrina thrice (pre-wedding, actual day and post wedding), and we had very good vibes about them as we found them sincere and easy-going. We're just thankful that we found them for our big day and would definitely recommend them to any couple!

It was a fantastic experience working with Petrina and Leon for our actual day wedding videography and photography. From the beginning, they guided us on the sequence of events that would happen in a wedding and advised us accordingly. During the actual day, they came early to prepare even though we were already starting at 4.30am. My husband and I really loved the morning wedding highlights video which really captured the essence of the morning. It has a very grand, dramatic and emotional cinematic feel. My entourage felt that they made everyone feel at ease throughout and during photoshoot as well. I received numerous good feedback from guests and friends on the photos I posted. I especially love how they are able to capture the emotions and expressions of people during the wedding. The prices for their services are really very reasonable too. We would definitely highly recommend anyone to engage them as your wedding videographer and photographer.

A Merry Moment was recommended to us by a friend and it turned out to be one of the best decisions that we made. Leon and Petrina were well organised and prompted us with the right questions before the wedding which helped to ensure a smooth wedding. They knew what moments to capture and planned for it. In the excitement of the actual day (and it being our first time), their forethought and planning was essential to the best parts of the final wedding video. Where necessary, they improvised and made something out of nothing. Throughout the wedding, they were friendly, calm and professional. Their video captured all the essential bits of the wedding that we want to remember or did not get to experience personally. We are both grateful to Leon and Petrina for capturing our big day on video!

We were searching for wedding photography done in our church and that was when we found A Merry Moment. We were worried at first because we don't have any friends who could recommend us and we were just relying on reviews from other clients.
When we sat down for a meeting 2 weeks before our wedding, we could see that Petrina and Leon were very calm and willing to listen to our requests. She noted down everything we thought could be important during the church ceremony.
On the actual day, they arrived on time in our hotel and we could feel that although we were trying to catch up, they worked very calmly and fast. We felt like they were able to help us relax and cheered us up. Without too much help from us, they were able to coordinate with our church team whom they had never met before.
Then once the wedding is over and we met them once again for the videos and photos. We were very happy and delightful to see the result! We like candid photos and wow, the candid photos taken were very nice and the color tone was also nicely done. We liked them so much!
The short video captured the best moments we had been thinking of and it was done nicely. Although the church ceremony was conducted in Bahasa Indonesia and Leon did not understand, he surprisingly put the right moment in the highlights.
We want to say thanks to Petrina and Leon for the great results we received. The prices for their services are really very reasonable too. We would definitely highly recommend anyone to engage them as your wedding videographer and photographer.

"Beautiful Memories Captured."
It was indeed pure joy and pleasure working with Leon & Petrina! Throughout the process, from the beginning to the end, we were very delighted engaging them as they have shown true professionalism. They met up with us prior to the day to understand our expectations & needs, and throughout the whole ceremony, they were very cooperative, responsive and helpful, yet at the same time discreet enough so the whole event went smoothly.
As the bride, often we go through roller coaster feelings during the wedding day itself, and it can be hard to even absorb the emotions. I'm glad to say now we have these beautiful moments captured by the professional skills of Leon & Petrina, that definitely shows all the emotions of the day, that we can watch over & over again, and savour for the rest of our lives!!
Thank you once again from the deepest of our hearts!!
- Yannick and Belinda
We initially decided to have a small ceremony and lunch reception to keep things simple, but after writing my vows I decided that we could not do without a videographer to capture what I believe to be the most important part of our wedding ceremony. Luckily for us, we managed to get Leon and Petrina at really short notice and they were responsive and came back to us very quickly, addressing our queries and understanding what we were looking for. Leon and Petrina managed to capture our solemnisation and provided us with a great highlights video within the same day. We were particularly impressed because our entire wedding ceremony and lunch reception was only 4 hours long as we did not have any gatecrashing, traditional Chinese wedding ceremonial events and practices or make-up segments, but Leon and Petrina rose to the occasion and were able to deliver a wonderful highlights video. We relived our special moment that night while watching the video. We are really happy and thankful that we managed to engage A Merry Moment and would highly recommend them.
- Mingkai and Patricia
We engaged Petrina as our actual day photographer! We loved all the pictures that she has taken. The photos are candid and of great quality. She did a great job in capturing each and every moment of the wedding. She also gave us lots of ideas for posed photos. On top of that, she is really friendly and helpful. Additionally, we loved the packaging of the returned USB!

"Nothing but Gratitude."
First of all, thank you Leon and Petrina, for being such a nice couple to work with! You guys are so chilled and easy-going. To be frank, when I saw your works online, I was so impressed with the quality you produce and I vividly remember when I was reaching out to you guys, it was already so close to our wedding! I was hoping you guys still had an available slot on our wedding day.
Thank goodness things worked out and during the actual day, we really felt at ease. You guys had such good rapport and to us, this is the most important thing while sourcing for a good photographer/videographer! Petrina, you are such an adorable and candid person. Thanks for those wonderful natural shots! Leon, really impressed with your work quality and being such a great guide to us while we pose for our shots!
Would love to see you guys around someday! Keep up with what you do, and all the best! Cheers <3

"The Right Choice."
It's been quite some time since I've written a proper review but I had to praise his amazing work for my full day wedding. I can honestly say that Leon's professionalism and experience in photography for my wedding can be seen in each and every photo. He helped us every step of the way from the morning at the bride's house, outdoor shoot and all the way to the wedding dinner.
We are extremely glad to have found A Merry Moment for our actual day wedding. If you are looking for artistic, and dramatic wedding photos to capture your wedding day then they are absolutely the right choice.

"Professional and Engaging."
We engaged Petrina to shoot for our tea ceremony and are very happy with the pictures taken. Petrina is great at capturing candid shots where everyone looks natural and relaxed. She was accommodating and professional even when the time overran a little due to bad weather and did not rush us through photo taking. Our families are also very satisfied with the pictures taken and loved the candid shots. Thank you Petrina for doing a great job and being easy-going even when there were some hiccups along the day.
- KH and Beverly
"Excellent Eye and Professional."
It was a wonderful experience to have Leon and Petrina capturing the moments of our engagement. They just have the eye for details and created beautiful imagery. You don't have to brief them and they know exactly what to do. Very professional and friendly. Highly recommended!
- Lenz and Evelyn
Petrina was one of the photographers for my wedding in December 2014. She had just started out then but she was already professional in the way she handled the shoot. She has a very good eye for shots and was very responsive in delivering the final photos. We highly recommend her services!
— Stephen and Christina
A wonderful experience with the couple. They made us so comfortable while shooting. My hubby and I are never the most natural models in front of the camera but they made it so easy for us and we are entirely happy with the results. The chemistry between them is uncanny as they worked effectively together and because of their excellent team work and positive vibes, they made all their photography subjects very happy .

"Professional and Patient"
This review is for Petrina Ng, my photographer for my recent ROM ceremony at Keppel Club. She is a professional and patient individual who aims to meet all expectations of my little request. She even went the extra mile to check the weather forecast and conducted a recce at the site, in order to capture the most beautiful scenes during my ROM ceremony.
She has indeed done a marvellous job and most of the pictures had met my expectation. She even managed to take a challenging photo for my grandparent and baby niece.
I thank her once again, and will definitely introduce more friends to her. Cheers!

"Captured the Essence of the Moment."
Well, what can I say about these 2 "partners-in-crime"? They took care of my actual day wedding shoot from start to finish with impeccable care and made sure we felt as comfortable as possible both on and off camera. I am the shyest person ever in front of the camera.These two worked together like clockwork and a well-oiled machine which resulted in some really beautiful shots which captured the essence of the moment.
As they say, we only get married once in our lifetime so getting the right person/team to document the moment is extremely crucial. Rest assure that this team will make good memories of one of the most important chapter in your lives!
Once again, I express my heartfelt thanks to Leon and Petrina!

"A memory is a photograph taken by the heart to make a special moment last forever. "
Thank you Leon and Petrina for the special moments taken of our daughter. - Renjie and Linda
I am so glad I managed to have Petrina on board for my wedding photography. When I look back at the photos she took of my wedding day, it makes me smile with joy. I am brought back to the beautiful memories and moments that she had taken; some of which I missed out on! Thank you Petrina for capturing these precious moments of a special day of my life so skilfully. Through your lenses, you made the wedding more beautiful than I could even remember it to be! I would recommend her to any of my friends for their future weddings in a heartbeat! She is professional and easy to work with.

"Fun and Friendly!"
Edi and I would really like to thank Petrina for being so fun and friendly to work with and for guiding us throughout the shoot. We really appreciated it and hope she did enjoy herself too! She has a way around people and even our family and friends were really comfortable with her! We really love the photos, thank you so much!
- Edi and Mun Yee
“Everyone loved the photos!”
Donald & I would like to thank Petrina & Leon for doing our pregnancy shoot. Despite the hot weather and curious eyes from the public, making the already "hot" & tired pregnant woman uncomfortable, they made it relaxing and all the shots were taken in a breeze.
They talked and shared jokes which brought out the smiles in us. Petrina was so thoughtful that she even had her little mat for us when we had to take some shots which required us to sit on the ground. They had ideas of different poses and even agreed to some of our requests like wanting to paint the tummy.
Our relatives and friends loved the photos and commented that they were well taken. We are happy with their service and will definitely engaged them again when our little Giselle turns one. Thank you once again Petrina and Leon!
— Donald and Jeannie
We had the honour of having Petrina and Leon capture our intimate nuptials at The White Rabbit. Their talents and creativity were visible in all pictures that were taken throughout the wedding and we really appreciate their professionalism including how their personalities puts everyone at ease. This allowed them to capture the intimate moments of our wedding, especially the moments we didn't notice. It certainly is a memory we can now enjoy and relive through their amazing pictures.
- Kenny and Mun Foong
Petrina does magic with her hands and a camera. I had 100% confidence in her for my ROM photography and they turned out oh-so-beautiful. She is calm, cool, fast and gets really good shots. Her ever composed self and smile calmed me down amongst all the flurry of activity around me to pose for the pictures. Thank you Pet for the memories! Love them!
- Kumaran and Anusuya
Petrina is an amazing wedding photographer! She captured our wedding so beautifully. She knew when to capture the best moments and the best emotions not only from us but also from our guests. We have received numerous compliments from our friends, families and vendors about how beautiful the photographs are.
Petrina was also professional and patient on the day of our wedding. She captured every special moment without being intrusive or distracting. She made us and guests feel very relaxed and comfortable. Each time we look through the photographs that Petrina had taken, we feel like we have re-lived the entire day and all the special moments again.
Thank you Petrina for doing a fantastic job capturing such beautiful moments on the most important day of our lives and for letting us cherish these moments forever. It was indeed our pleasure to have you shoot at our wedding.
- Vanessa and Tze Hau
We would like to think Petrina for the beautiful photographs she took of our family at Fort Canning this year. She was very patient and interacted with the children very well. We warmed up to her easily and even though we were not used to posing for photographs, she helped direct us naturally and we had fun in the process. It was not easy getting good angles that would flatter everyone but Petrina managed it and we were very happy with the photographs!
— Lim and Michelle
"A Wonderful Experience."
We engaged A Merry Moment for our maternity and post-pregnancy photo shoots after Petrina shot at our wedding a few years ago. We were very impressed with their professionalism and customer service. Petrina was very patient and detail-oriented. Prior to the photo shoots, she took time out to understand our ideas and advised accordingly. Her bubbly attitude and creativity ensured that our shoots were fun and enjoyable. Thank you for the wonderful experience and photos! Cheers!
- Li Yang and Winda
"Dedicated and Professional."
My family and I had a very enjoyable and fun-filled session with Petrina and Leon. They are very dedicated and professional, teaching us how to pose and even brought things like a mat for us (especially important for noobs like us). They ensured that the photo shoot was fuss-free and had been very patient with us which was especially important as we have the little one. Thank you A Merry Moment!
