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. With a background in photojournalism, I am a storyteller at heart and have been recognized internationally for my work. I am dedicated to giving couples the best experience, pleasing their loved ones, and bringing a smile to their faces throughout the day. From large country club celebrations to intimate back yard ceremonies, I love telling stories. [Tampa Wedding Photographer]
Julie's fascination with photography started early. Hanging in her family home were two side-by-side portraits: one of her sister, perfectly coiffed and surrounded by carefully arranged stuffed animals; and one of Julie, tangled hair, one sock falling down and struggling to put on a pair of shoes. Julie passed those photos every day until the idea that people and character should be in photographs was as second nature as bee-bopping to ’80s music. Fast-forward fifteen years and you will meet a self-made, successful, award-winning artists who, despite her interest in all visual mediums, has devoted herself exclusively to candid moment driven photojournalistic photography in Key West. Below the bubbly surface that will charm both bride and groom is a serious professional and incredible artists. [Key West Wedding Photographer]
My focus is connecting, creating, and sharing with people: photography is a beautiful avenue for that. I began documenting weddings many years ago in college & have simply never really stopped. It's often the happiest day of someone's life, what a treat to experience that alongside them. I'm addicted to the challenge of making portraits beautiful regardless of the venue, weather, or circumstances. And now, it's incredible to see clients repost those photos for their anniversaries, celebrating as many as 15 years together! I've had the pleasure of shooting worldwide, from Oregon to Florida, France to Bahamian cruises, Chicago to Arizona, and so many dynamic places in between. Each couple has their own ideas of how to celebrate their love and I feel such it's such an honor when I'm chosen to document that for them. I don't aim to orchestrate their day but to photograph it in a way that captures all that they wish to remember it by. It gives me intense joy to think of generations from now flipping through wedding albums I create and these images becoming woven into their family's histories. What's not to love about two people so madly in love they're ready to promise their lives to partner up together. Beyond my camera, I'm a wife and mother in Florida who's addicted to dance fitness classes and gardening. There are few things I enjoy more than dinner parties with friends, funny chickens in my backyard, and laughing children in the pool. [Sarasota Wedding Photographer]
When Tim had his first encounter with a DSLR camera he was so fascinated he couldn’t put it away. He soon understood it was so much more than a toy. Not long after, he decided to make his new passion his profession. During the next few years, he received a great deal of training from top photographers, learning what weddings were all about. During this time his eyes opened up to the real meaning of being a wedding photographer. Tim states, “I wanted to document the tears, laughter, excitement, and love between the couple so that when they look back, they can relive the day. My images will tell a story that words cannot describe. I capture moments that will never come back. I learned how to be a true storyteller.” Since then, he has been working hard to make each and every wedding a sparkling and memorable day for decades to come. As a single man, Tim never thought much about anything related to weddings. His perspective of wedding photography changed entirely as soon as he got married. “I started to see people, hear their stories, feel their wedding jitters.” He wanted to tell the story of the day through his photographs. “I realized what a blessing, challenge, and responsibility it was to be a part of the happiest day of a beautiful couple’s life.” Tim feels happiest when he receives letters from the newlyweds saying that the wedding images he has taken were more than they had expected and that they had already framed and hung some of them around their home. “I take it very personally”, he admits, “I treat every wedding as if it was my own. I want all of them to be perfect!” [Manhattan Wedding Photographer]
