What our clients are saying about Fun in the Sun Weddings
I can tell you this: I have been working in this area as a wedding planner for 7+ years now! I have worked with as you can imagine many, many different photographers! The day that I met Marc and Gill from Fun in The Sun Weddings changed my life as a wedding planner! I have always been very cautious to recommend photographers to my brides as I know it is such a personal choice. I do not have that anymore! I know offer Marc to ALL of my couples as after working with him on many events I honestly can't go back to any other photographers! Marc is so incredibly talented behind the lens however the life and love that he is able to capture through being so incredible with our groups takes it that step further. He helps get the shots that other photographers just don't even think of. He puts people at ease, and for this is able to get the best most natural photos of our couples and their friends! He is fun, has tons of energy and truly loves what he does and boy oh boy does it reflect in the photos! You honestly could not go wrong in hiring Fun in the sun for your big day!

I highly recommend using Fun In The Sun Photography for a wedding in Mexico! We had such a blast with Marc the photographer, we felt really comfortable around him, he made the day really fun and stress free. My wedding party was laughing throughout the day and telling me how funny and great he was. And you need to laugh a little when it's 90 degrees with 100% humidity!! Not to mention we love love love our pictures - they came out so beautiful. He's very talented and did a great job capturing the gorgeous and vibrant background of Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our wedding day. As far as contacting and emailing the company, Gillian (who is Marc's wife) is very sweet, professional and responds to you very quickly. I received all my pictures about a month after my wedding, I thought that was a very fast turn around time. My husband and I are very pleased with our choice and would suggest this company to anyone having a destination wedding anywhere in Riviera Maya, Mexico!!

My husband and I got married in Cabo san Lucas. We were fortunate that Marc was able to attend and be our personal photographer for the week! Not only did he snap shots on our special day but he attended our rehearsal dinner boat cruise event as well as a day by the pool on the resort. I couldn’t have asked for more. He was so fun, yet professional to work with. Weddings can be stressful! When Leo and I were overwhelmed and distracted by everything that was going on, Marc had this amazing, positive energy that kept us going. I provided a list of specific family photos that were important to me to be captured. He was so good at getting everyone together and organized that we got every shot we wanted in a short period of time. When we got our pictures back (which didn’t take long at all) we were amazed by the shots he was able to capture. He nailed it! I would highly recommend Fun In The Sun Weddings for your wedding photography!

We got married in Cancun in July 2016. Marc was absolutely amazing. His fun personality made the whole picture taking experience a blast. He is so funny but very professional. He makes you feel like you've known him forever! He fulfilled every request I had, and even remembered all of my pinterest board ideas I wanted. He was very good at telling you how to pose or what to do in the shot. He also got a lot of candid photos which we wanted. He has a great eye, a beautiful talent, and gift which you can tell photography is his passion-which clearly reflects in his work. His wife Gillian is very diligent on responding to emails in a timely manner and addressing all questions/concerns. We received so many compliments on our photos and everyone loved Marc. All of our guests thought he was so much fun. We've had multiple professional photos taken and hands down this was by far the best experience and best results. I wish they lived in the USA so I could use them again! We would definitely refer them to anyone who is looking for beautiful photos and a fun time doing it at a very reasonable price. We cannot thank Marc enough for capturing such beautiful moments of our wedding. If I could give a 10 star I would!!

When Colin and I started the wedding planning process, we had a big debate over whether we would use his favourite photographer or my favourite photographer... turns out, it was the same person! Marc has the rarest ability to make one feel at ease in their own skin. Generally, we are the type of people that hate having our photos taken; Marc made the process enjoyable and way too fun! Our wedding guests are still raving about the high quality of photos, service and above all just great people to be around. We couldn’t have chosen a better photographer to capture our special day. Thanks Marc and Gillian!

We hired Marc to work with our family friend as a second photographer. They worked so well together and made our day absolutely incredible. We had a couple issues getting ready and he was great at getting all our photos of the dress done while I needed to organize myself. It was very relaxed but still lots of fun! The ceremony was amazing, and my father in law said that he was incredible at getting the photos we needed but still making the ceremony sacred and not distracting our guests from the ceremony itself. It was especially impressive because the church was so tiny!!!! Our creative photos were fun and romantic! And we had a wonderful time!! We felt very comfortable and we had a lot of laughs while getting some beautiful photos. Marc and Gillian went above and beyond for us, meeting us over skype and being available at the specific time we requested. We would recommend Fun in the Sun Weddings to any couple looking to get beautiful photos, have a good time and feel very relaxed while it all happens! Thank you Marc and Gillian!!!!

You cannot go wrong booking Fun in the Sun Weddings for your wedding photos. We live in the United States and planned a destination wedding in the Riveria Maya. It was a bit nerve racking to book something so important based on emails and a website but Fun in the Sun Weddings does not disappoint. They are simply outstanding. Communication throughout the whole process was superb. We felt comfortable with them from the minute we met. Within a week of returning from our vacation our sneak peak was ready and within two weeks we had our online gallery. Marc and Shari captured moments from that day that I have not seen in anyone elses portfolio. There are so many ``real`` moments that are documented from our big day and they take me right back to that special place and time. I can only hope that we will return to the Riviera Maya again some day and will be able to work with them again on another special life moment. You guys rock!

We couldn't have been more pleased with the job Fun In The Sun did with our wedding photos. They were very professional and captured some amazing shots that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. They were a pleasure to work with, and a lot of fun too! Highly recommended 🙂

Marc was the ultimate professional for our family beach shoot in Mexico! He suggested the place and the time of day and from that point on it was truly magical. He spent more than 2 hours with us and shot an unbelievable number of pictures! Most of them were candid and many times we were totally unaware that he was shooting! Ultimately, that made for the most amazing pictures. Marc promptly e-mailed them to us and we were blown away! There are so many awesome pictures that I will definitely be printing every single one of them. Marc is personable, creative and a pleasure to work with. The price was more than reasonable and the pictures are PRICELESS! I would recommend Marc to anyone who is in need of pictures for any type of event! I am looking forward to the next opportunity where Marc can use his talent to capture family memories for me! Words can not express how thankful I am!

Fun In The Sun Weddings were perfect for our wedding, and every event surround it! Mark and his team were professional, fun, and provided great energy for every event. We used them for our welcome party bonfire, our wedding and we did a trash the dress photo shoot the day after the wedding. We couldn't be happier with the photos that were taken. They were able to capture every important moment, and every special shot I requested. Their use of two photographers proved very valuable in that they were able to capture multiple angles at one time. They were so fun, and all our guests were so comfortable working with them. I would HIGHLY recommend Fun In The Sun Weddings for your Mexican wedding!

My husband and I used Fun In The Sun Weddings as the photographers for our wedding in Riviera Maya, Mexico. Our travel agent recommended Gillian and Marc, after viewing their work we decided to hire them to capture our special day. Initial contact was quick and easy, I always received a timely reply and had any questions and concerns answered. Gillian also made me feel at ease about any wedding day concerns I had. On the day of our wedding my husband and I along with our family and friends were so impressed with the service. They truly made us feel at ease and were so fun! Marc had great ideas for poses, locations around the resort etc and the photos are stunning! We could not be any happier with the final product, our photos are beautiful and creative. We are 100% satisfied and would definitely recommend them.

We found Fun In The Sun Weddings online when deciding we wanted a photographer for our small and intimate Akumal wedding. Gillian made the booking process a breeze. Marc did an amazing job at capturing the moment with his beautiful photos. His humor made the concept of photos being taken by a stranger feel comfortable. Be sure to be very clear about location as there was some confusion which led to a close call on timing. We were very pleased with our photos and would definitely suggest Fun In The Sun Weddings!

Fun in the Sun Weddings went above and beyond in ensuring that my husband and my wedding photos were beautiful AND that we enjoyed taking them! Both my husband and myself are not big on picture taking and tend not to be photogenic.... Marc was and unreal photographer and brought out the best pictures possible, while bringing out honest laughter and smiles! My husband and I are still over the moon impressed with how fantastic Gillian and Marc are and have been passing Fun in The Sun Weddings along to everyone! We can't thank Gillian and Marc enough for making a painful part of a wedding (taking a million pictures) such an enjoyable time.

Mark is a champion! Fun in the Sun took our “dream” surprise wedding and captured what seemed like every moment. And there was no shortage of amazing ones! The secret with any elite photographer is the ability to hide in the weeds and catch those raw natural shots. The entire evening felt as if Mark was a guest and part of the party. He was a real chameleon and the photos speak for themselves. Every time we have visitors at our house, our wedding album turns heads. Mark’s creative vision, light-heartedness and passion make him a star and we would highly recommend Fun in the Sun Weddings!

Great experience from start to finish. Our inquiries were answered promptly by Gillian an Marc was waiting at the agreed upon time and place for our session. Pricing was very reasonable and photos were delivered electronically for down load given us full control over how and when to print them. The pictures were perfect and customer service did not end after purchase. Gillian continues to respond promptly to our inquiries.

Marc and Gillian captured our first ever ``family`` photos. They knew exactly how to make my young children look right at the camera and actually smile! That to me is SOLID GOLD right there! The pictures turned out amazing and it was a fun experience all around. I highly recommend Fun in the Sun Weddings! 5 Stars.

My husband and I have known Marc and Gill for a long time, and right when we got engaged we knew right away who we wanted to do our photography! Marc is insanely talented and creative. I've had the pleasure of working with him in Vancouver on a few jobs and while he is the most outgoing, hilarious person you will ever meet- he is extremely professional. We were so excited when they said they were able to shoot our wedding, I've seen tons of Marc's photo's and already know how amazing he is so it put my mind at ease that no matter what, my wedding photos would turn out amazing. 🙂 He captured such fantastic, sentimental shots without us even knowing he was there. He was also so open to any ideas Adam and I had. He was so excited while shooting our wedding , you would have thought it was his first wedding! It's so refreshing to have a photographer like that instead of someone who's just getting the job done. He went above and beyond in every aspect. Also- I have to say that even though my husband and I already knew Marc and Gill- if your wedding is your first time meeting him, you will feel like he has been your friend for years after ten minutes and that is so important in making the shooting experience as comfortable as possible. Fun in the Sun Weddings is the only photography company I would recommend for any upcoming brides and grooms!

There prices are fair and you get so much more then expected! I would totally recommend him for any type of shoot if your in mexico!

Fun in the Sun Weddings was recommended to me by my wedding planner and after looking at their website and photo gallery, I knew they would be a perfect fit for the vibe we wanted! So happy we went with them! Choosing a photographer for a destination wedding can be tricky and Gillian and Marc are the perfect team to make you feel at ease. Gillian was always quick to respond to any questions and we had an great time with Marc the day of the wedding as he was taking pictures of us getting down on the dance floor. People can't stop gushing over how awesome our pictures turned out (with the help of mother nature and those storm clouds!) and I have to agree. 🙂

These photographers were the best. They were warm, friendly and had great photo shoot ideas. By the time we arrived at the reception, they were like the other guests to me. They blended in so well with our group and were just a delight. They took pictures without me even knowing -- really catching the moment. I cannot say enough good things about them. Real professionals and the pictures prove that. We are extremely pleased with the pictures. Thanks for doing such a great job! You made my daughter, the bride, very happy.

These photographers know how to do their job and make it FUN! Our friends and family had a blast with these photographers on our wedding day in Isla Mujeres, Mexico. They were very professional and so easy to work with. They made my husband and I so comfortable which resulted in the most stunning and breathtaking photos I have ever seen. Their team was were so easy to work with because of their great personalities and organizing skills. We spent 8 full hours with them and it was worth every penny, every smile and every shot. Our photos are amazing and high quality. These photographers know what they are doing and they went to great lengths to get the perfect shot every time- this involved them laying on the floor, climbing in trees and plants and even standing in water to get the perfect angle. They have a passion for photography and you can see that in each of our photos. I highly recommend Fun in the Sun Weddings as your wedding day photographers, I promise you will not be disappointed. They added a personal touch by creating our own personal wedding blog with photos and our love story. They captured everything from getting ready to our first look photos to the ceremony and reception. Before selecting Fun in The Sun Weddings as our photographers we compared them to several other photographers in the Cancun area. When we viewed their portfolio no other companies photography quality compared to theirs and we knew this was the company for us! Our wedding photos look like they belong in a magazine. We will forever cherish our photos, they are priceless and timeless. If you want A LOT of pictures as well this is the right photographer for you. You will not have any boring shots either. They guided and suggested us for what to do in each photo and a lot of it just came natural. This is by far the best photographer I have ever worked with and if you want the best, then Fun In the Sun Weddings is for you. You cannot go wrong if you are considering their services.
