About us

Welcome to
Fun In The Sun Weddings

Fun In The Sun Weddings is a destination wedding photography company shooting on the sunny shores of Playa del Carmen, Mexico. We specialize in professional wedding photography on the tropical beaches of Cancun to Tulum, and all points in between along the beautiful Riviera Maya. Our belief is that the best wedding photographers deliver not only professionalism but also an experience! We are photographers who thrive on capturing all of life’s exciting moments in a timeless picture; proposals, engagements, maternity, special events or even your family holiday. And as our name implies, we have fun while we work!  Phenomenal photos are born from a carefree environment of smiles and laughter, and that is our ultimate goal. We especially love to work with clients who have an adventurous spirit, who aren’t afraid to walk on the wild side!

Listen, we completely appreciate what a big deal your wedding day is. Our own destination wedding was an epic disaster from Will you marry me until days after I do, and rivaled the movie “The Hangover”. Seriously! (Want the whole crazy story? here it is)  And so, it has become our mission to leave you with a positive wedding story to tell. This is your vacation of a lifetime, and we know that above all else you just want everyone to have a great experience!  Choosing us guarantees you excellent customer service and personal attention from the get go. On your big day, Marc will help you relax, keep things comfortable and have fun. There will be so many amazing photos of you having the time of your lives, that you might go broke buying frames for them all! You will not find another company in the Riviera Maya like Fun In The Sun Weddings.

Our story 

We are husband and wife team Marc & Gillian Andrew, and that adorable little human with us is our son, Easton. We made the crazy decision to uproot our lives in Vancouver, Canada, and relocate to the Riviera Maya of Mexico, on a quest for a life full of possibility and opportunity for our little guy.

We had both traveled extensively before we met, and fourteen years ago when our paths crossed we continued to explore the world together. For both of us, travel is less of a bug and more of a virus! This adventurous move to the Caribbean was a dream we’ve always shared, and living abroad was not a foreign concept to us.

Our wanderlust had us feeling suffocated by the idea of accepting a life that didn’t inspire us, and of just going through the motions of raising our child. So, with the small human in tow, we headed south to start a grassroots destination wedding photography business within the extremely competitive market of a country who’s language we do not even speak. How’s that for satisfying a restless spirit?

We’ve worked together to build a beautiful life and a fabulous company that we love. We are a team who each brings different strengths to the mix: Marc is The Creative Genius, our lead photographer and editor.  Gillian is the Business Manager, and everything that comes along with that title. (Behind every great man, they say…)

And our little man is thriving as he grows up in this spectacular place called Mexico.
