What You'll Get
Before photography, the only way people could preserve their most treasured memories was by forcing everyone around them to stand completely still for days at a time. Today's Groupon presents a less complicated option: for $35, you get a 90-minute photo session, plus a $75 printing credit, at Carissa Hoopes Photography (up to a $225 total value). As many as five subjects can attend the photo shoot at Carissa Hoopes's studio in Buda or at any other location within 20 miles of the studio (there is an additional fee for travel outside of a 20-mile radius).
A 90-minute photo session with skilled shutterbug Carissa Hoopes ($100 in-studio, $150 on location) provides ample time for friends, family members, and even newly acquainted Craigslist contacts to coordinate their smiles. Carissa lends her lens years of passion-driven experience, and works with each set of subjects differently to ensure that poses are natural, grins are organic, and bonds seem sincere, even if they are the accidental result of petting a glue-covered Furby. The brand-new studio offers a professional setting for shutter work for those who want to cultivate a clean image, though customers are also welcome to pick their favorite house, park, or rickety suspension bridge for a shoot.
This Groupon also includes a $75 credit to be used toward print purchases. Commemorate your family’s blindingly white smiles or your own clever use of bunny ears with a 4”x6” ($14.40), a 5”x7” ($25.60), an 8”x10” ($33.60), or any other fancy combination of frameables that allows you to show off your math muscles. Groupon customers can also purchase the entire image disc for a discounted rate of $500 (normally $1,000). Call to schedule an appointment.
This Groupon is not valid for bridal sessions.

About Carissa Hoopes Photography
For many Americans traveling abroad, Europe's centuries-old charm sparks feelings of love. That’s what happened for Carissa Hoopes, and while she didn’t fall for a mustachioed bread maker, it was during a trek across the pond where her passion for photography solidified. After returning home, Carissa was inspired to pursue a professional career, first learning under other commercial and wedding snappers, and eventually opening a business with her husband, Chris. As he manages the production and design details, Carissa takes the creative lead, capturing the tender, genuine, and naturally funny moments clients have when they aren't aware they’re in her camera’s viewfinder.
