Hi, We're Carly Marmen Photography!

ROMANTIC wedding photography in MIDDLE TENNESSEE

We treat you like family.

Timeless memories captured in a way that will allow you to look back and feel the emotions all over again. We believe in printing and archiving photos for future generations to enjoy for years to come.

We believe in heirlooms.

Dark lipstick, cooking up new recipes, flowy dresses and leather jackets, wearing booties with almost everything, taco and margarita nights, and my secret love of game shows - especially Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune. 

what I'm known for:

I remember vividly the night I walked into my high school open house and picked up the brochure that would change my life. A simple photography class morphed into a passion for capturing moments. I fell in love with the trade. I loved how one image could bring a flood of memories and emotions so easily. I knew that my purpose was to create and preserve these moments for others.

I'm a Southern girl with a big city personality. You probably won't hear me say "y'all" that often, but I do believe sweet tea is liquid magic.

Every photographer has a unique style and spin on how they capture your memories. While the posed photos are great, we prefer candid interaction. The love you share really shines through when you are just simply being yourselves.

Expect lots of laughs and even a few quiet moments to reflect on how much you mean to each other. With this style the connection you share will really shine through in your photos.

Carly and her assistant were SO incredibly helpful during our wedding!! We have a very large family and she made everything a breeze. I am not a huge fan of having my picture taken but I felt relaxed and comfortable throughout the photo taking process! Carly is such a sweet person and she made everything so easy while still capturing every detail of our special day. Our pictures turned out amazing! We were beyond impressed with how awesome Carly and her team were! I’ll definitely be recommending to anyone who is looking for a photographer.
