Family Photography
in the Riviera Maya

Whether it’s a holiday with your kids, or a huge family reunion, you will want more than selfies to reflect back on later. Indulge in professional photos to preserve the memory of everyone happy together and having the time of your lives!

Location

The location is up to you, and should reflect your own unique personality. By default we shoot at the beaches of Playa del Carmen & Cancun most often, of course, but other backdrops like playing at the pool, going on a catamaran tour, or walking the colorful streets of Mexico are excellent options as well! We are open to your wild and crazy ideas, and will do our best to keep up!

Planning

The best time of day is one to two hours before sunset, because the light is buttery and the heat starts to subside. Families with young children should allow for a one hour session before the kids get bored, and schedule this during the child’s ‘optimal’ time of day. Larger groups, plan two hours to accommodate everyone’s requests. And most importantly, pack refreshments!

What to wear

Keep in mind that on most days it is hot and sticky here. You will be most comfortable in lightweight, natural fibers. Everyone’s colors should compliment each other and also that of your chosen location. Please avoid wearing any busy patterns or stripes if possible. Bring a change of clothes if you want photos in or around the ocean, or jumping in the pool.

Our Family Photography

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!

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
