The whole point of having a destination wedding is to make it all easier and more fun than doing it at home, right?

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)

So it has become a mission for us to leave every bride and groom with a happy story to tell! This is your wedding! You and your guests deserve an exceptional experience, and that means getting superior customer service and personal attention from the get-go, and most importantly – having FUN!

On your Big Day, Marc will help you relax, and keep things comfortable. You are going to LAUGH! When the dust settles, you will have so many awesome photos of your Best Day Ever, that you will wonder how to frame them all!

You will not find another photographer in the Riviera Maya like Fun In The Sun Weddings.

Our story 

We are husband and wife team Marc & Gillian Andrew, and the adorable little human with us is our son, Easton. In the pursuit of happiness, we decided to uproot our lives in Vancouver, Canada, and relocate to the Riviera Maya of Mexico. A quest for a life full of possibility and opportunity for our little guy led us to where we are today.

We had both traveled extensively before we met, and in 2002 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.

Why settle for a life that didn’t inspire us? Life should be filled with adventure and fun!

So, we created a world where our office is a breathtaking Caribbean beach, and our work is capturing the most exciting adventure in people’s lives!

We’ve worked together to build a beautiful life and a fabulous business that we love and take great pride in. 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.

We had a great time working with Gillian and Marc. We were in Playa del Carmen for a couple's getaway and decided we... wanted a few pictures of ourselves beyond the selfies we had been taking. So ours weren't "wedding pictures". We contacted them and decided to go with the Mini Package. We met them by their home (they gave detailed directions for the taxi driver). Marc picked a number of nearby spots: we walked from one to the other in a matter of seconds - a rustic fence, palm trees, the beach, some Mayan ruins, and jungle shots. Marc has a great eye and could tell us how to pose, where to stand, etc.In less than two weeks, we got a link to the photos. We were very pleased, and they are ours to share or print as we wish. They look great and Marc was able to make an older couple look pretty good! We would highly recommend them. Well worth it!read more

My fiance and I had the most amazing experience with Fun In the Sun Weddings. My fiance arranged a surprise proposal... for me with Marc over Skype prior to us arriving in Mexico. He was informative, easy to talk to and really helpful in suggesting the most beautiful location and coming up with a great cover story - I was clueless throughout! We had a photoshoot on the beach after the proposal and Marc was extremely fun and engaging. We received our pictures around 2 weeks later and all of the pictures are stunning! I relive the moment every time I look at them. We have the most beautiful photos and wonderful memories which we will treasure forever. Highly recommend Fun In the Sun Weddings if you are planning a special occasion around Playa del Carmen!read more

Marc and his team were so professional, so funny, and kept it interesting the entire time! My fiance can be a little... annoying about taking all the photos but Marc kept him laughing the whole time so he completely forgot about it! Also the communication with Gillian was great, she never left us in the dark and quickly responded! It's always a little nerve wracking hiring someone in a different country you've never met, etc but they put my mind at ease throughout the entire process. My only regret is not purchasing a longer photography package so trust me when I say THEY ARE WORTH IT! Cannot wait to get my photos back!!!read more

Got married in Playa del Carmen at the Valentin December 7th, 2019. I highly recommend Fun in the Sun Weddings if you... are considering hiring a destination wedding photographer. From initial contact, questions and booking they made it so easy and I felt very taken care of comfortable. Our resort had an in-house photographer but from what I saw online I was convinced I wanted Fun in the Sun and it was well worth the hotels outside vendor fee. On the special day I was immediately comfortable with the photographers (Marc & I forgot the second photographers name but she was the best) as was my husband and our guests. We received our photos ahead of schedule and could not be more pleased with them! It was EXACTLY what I wanted. Job well done!!! If I had to do it all over, I'd book them again in a heartbeat!read more

My fiancé and I were on a cruise this past week and had a day to spend in Cozumel. We had yet to get our engagement... pictures done, so 2 weeks before leaving, we reached out to Marc and Gillian to see if they had a last minute availability for an engagement shoot the 1 day we would be near their city, and they did! They responded so quickly with all the necessary information I had requested. We chose them from the other glowing reviews they have, and so far, we couldn't be happier we did! (I say so far because we haven't received the pictures back yet, but we expect to be just as pleased with them as we are the experience!)They could not have been more accommodating and helpful through the whole process with us being from out of town and only available for a very small window of time. Marc made us feel so comfortable the entire time; we let him do his thing and he let us give input and our short time (an hour & a half) was so well spent with all the different backdrops he was able to provide. We took photos in the colorful city, a jungle ruin scene, and ended at sunset on the beach! It was absolutely perfect! And Gillian was the absolute sweetest to coordinate with! If you have any worries about meeting random people in a random place, they will completely take that away 😂 I would give them 5/5 over again and as I said, we are so anxious to see the photos- we know they are going to be great! If you're thinking of booking, do it! I don't think you'll have any regrets either! Thanks so much Marc & Gillian!read more

My wife and I decided to renew our vowels in Playa Del Carmen. We reviewed multiple photographers in the area and... decided to go with Fun in the Sun weddings. Wow we made the correct choice. Marc was very professional and super easy to get along with. We went to multiple locations including the beach, jungle, and the city. I worked with Gillian prior to us landing in Mexico and she was quick to answer any questions and alleviated any anxiety that we had. She hooked us up with her friend (Angie) who completed my wife's hair and make-up. All in all this was a fantastic experience and I would definitely give everyone a 5 star rating. Oh by the way, Gillian officiated our ceremony and it was definitely a moment that me and my spouse will cherish for the rest of our lives.. Very professional...… 5 STARS.....read more

Fun In the Sun are simply AMAZING! They really are more than photographers. From the beginning through to the end they... offered endless support, advice, and they create such a relaxed and fun atmosphere! On the day itself we felt comfortable and confident, and it was like having two friends there with you! Their experience and professionalism shines through, allowing you to relax and have the best day! We got our first round of photos through this week and couldn’t be happier with the results, they are seriously talented and genuinely love what they do! Since posting our 'sneak peek' photos on social media, so many people have commented that these photos look like they should be 'in a magazine', or that they're some of the best photos they've ever seen - It truly is mind boggling just how fantastic these photos are. I keep staring at them in disbelief!!! (and in amazement) If you’re thinking about booking Fun In the Sun for your wedding , DO IT!!! You won’t be disappointed. They have captured memories we will cherish for a lifetime! I'm so excited to see the rest of them!!read more

Amazing Engagement shoot!! From start to finish the experience was amazing!! Amazing communication via email. It was... pouring rain the day of our shoot and Marc was so kind to send a message saying that they are watching the weather closely and it didn't look like it was going to clear up so they were so kind to reschedule to another day.The shoot itself was SO MUCH FUN. Marc is so down to earth and funny. My guy wasn't super excited about the photo shoot but instantly felt comfortable and actually had fun!!! Our pics turned out amazing and we couldn't be happier. Highly recommend Fun in the Sun!read more

Marc and Gillian are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. We used Fun In The Sun Weddings for our Wedding in January. Choosing them was... one of the best decisions. Not only did Ryan and I love his fun, energetic personality, but our guests loved him too! He had us laughing the whole time...making those candid laughing shots so perfect. He ensured we got every shot we wanted, timing was coordinated and we were having a good time. Our photos still have us speechless, and we couldn't be happier. You will not be disappointed with Fun In The Sun.read more

Suite job! I used Marc for the photos for our hotel, Honey B Suites in Playa del Carmen, and we are ecstatic with the... results! He did everything we asked of him and more - went above and beyond to capture all the best shots, different days, different times of day, etc. The photos truly capture the spirit of the hotel and present us in our 'best light'. We'll be using his photos for our website and all promotions. I know he brings the same professionalism, enthusiasm and genuine care for ALL of his clients. Such a dedicated, talented individual.read more
