Hello there! I studied photojournalism at Western Kentucky University & that's where I developed the passion for story telling with a camera. Art has always been in my life & I think it gives me a unique edge to how I photograph people's lives. I don't want a simple snapshot.
Hey there, I'm Carrie Pratt, the owner and principal photographer of Simply Blue Studios. I work out of both Tampa Bay, Florida, as well as Bowling Green, Kentucky. My specialty is creative documentary photography, weaving moments into my images that are iconic symbols of the day.
Carrie is great! She's been a newspaper photographer for years, so she's fast and able to capture real moments that happen in a split second. But she's also incredibly familiar with the wedding environment so she...

Getting Married in Kentucky
Opening up your pathway from the northern states to the south, Kentucky offers southern hospitality and scenic locations for unforgettable wedding locations and photographs. While planning a wedding in the state of Kentucky, photography locations are in a vast variety. Wedding photojournalists who shoot in Kentucky have the pleasure of using anything from the placid waters of local lakes or the stunning presence of the Appalachian Mountains as panoramic backdrops. In the Bluegrass Region of Kentucky, wedding photojournalism is exposed to breathtaking backdrops of landscapes tapered with white picket fences and country sides adorned with green grass. This region of Kentucky, which boasts of horses, racetracks, and 450 thoroughbred farms, provides the bride and groom with beautiful wedding locations to choose from. If your location is near the Green and Nolin Rivers in Kentucky, wedding photojournalists may enjoy shooting creative wedding photos at the Mammoth Cave National Park. This is the longest explored cave system in the world! On the Virginia border, the Cumberland Gap remains as majestic as ever, as do the canyons of the Red River Gorge and Natural Bridge’s sandstone arches. These sites will provide unique photograph opportunities for your Kentucky wedding photographer. In the Northern Kentucky River Region, wedding guests and members of the wedding party will be able to enjoy some of the most pristine and placid lakes in the country. Exploring vast acres of water regions, riding trains through spectacular gorges, and stopping in towns where important events of the under ground railroad took place, Kentucky is not only a wonderful site for memorable weddings, it is a region rich in history, beauty and culture.
