Get To Know Us!
Rhett Marley was born and raised in Texarkana, Texas. In 2006, Rhett moved to Charleston, SC to attend college at Charleston Southern University. It was during this time that he began to grow as a photographer and Marley Photography was formed. “I honestly stumbled into the wedding industry! My classmates began to get engaged and they knew that I loved taking pictures. I was thankfully one of the few students that had taken courses on photography and had his own professional gear ready to be put to use. As time progressed, people started contacting me to see if I would be their photographer. From there it became a snowball effect that grew into what Marley Photography, LLC has become today: an award winning photography business!
As Marley Photography began to grow, Rhett and his wife Alicyne both photographed weddings. The Marley's now have two boys and finding a babysitter every weekend and sometimes up to three times a weekend simply became too much to manage. Because of this, Alicyne has transitioned into being a stay at home mother. She is also the person who handles the social media & advertising side of the business which has allowed Rhett to focus more on what he loves: photography!“
"I love the opportunities that arise from being a professional photographer! I have encountered people from all walks of life. At my age, I have witnessed more people get married than what most see in a lifetime. I capture the exciting moments of young love during an engagement. I watch as families come together after being a part for months and appreciate the genuine smiles on their faces. I get to congratulate seniors as they reach a goal that took them years to achieve. I tell people that being a photographer is one of the best jobs anyone can have, but many never give it a second thought… What people fail to appreciate is that I have the honor of capturing milestones in life that are never to be repeated again. I pray that I never lose sight of this passion!” - Rhett Marley
