Photographs transport people to an earlier time without the need to master quantum physics or pay the tolls associated with America's wormhole highways. Capture fleeting moments for future examination with today's Groupon: for $59, you get a one-hour photo session for up to five people and a $100 photo credit from Carissa Hoopes Photography (up to a $250 value). This Groupon is valid within 20 miles of the studio in Buda and on Tuesday–Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., or on Saturdays for an additional $25. The session includes:

  • A 60-minute photoshoot in studio or at the location of your choice (a $150 value)
  • A $100 credit toward prints, books, canvases, or canvas clusters

Photographer Carissa Hoopes captures relationships between groups of friends and families as well as individual personalities in natural, candid images. Groups can choose a location for their shoot, such as a park or Bigfoot habitat, or come to the brand-new, intimate Buda studio and pose amid natural light in front of bright backdrops and eclectic sets. Carissa’s collection of props, including dapper hats, fluffy pettiskirts, or twirly tutus, adds flare to photos, and after the shoot, photo subjects can view their proofs on the studio’s large-screen projector. Clients can then use the print credit toward prints (starting at $25), books, canvases, or canvas clusters to hang in bare treehouses. They can also purchase a CD containing all of their images for a discounted rate of $550 (normally $1,000). Click here to see examples from last year's Groupon customers.

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.

Carissa and her husband were amazing for the hour photo shoot. Patient and gave great ideas for pictures and backdrops. They were both funny and got the kids to smile and follow directions. Amazing photo shoot. Then 5 days later we were met with a slideshow of all the pictures. I was blown away. Every single one of the pictures was priceless and perfect. I don't know how she was able to get such great pictures, but this was the most amazing photo session, both during and after. Cost for the digital downloads was about what was expected for a true professional. Great service and great product. We will be using Carissa Hoopes again!
