KIND WORDS...

Ahhh!!! You have done it again! We just can’t thank you enough for the most beautiful pictures of our baby girl. You know just how to
capture the best little moments and give us such beautiful images to remember them by. Our hearts are so full and we love every single picture. Thank you!  Not only are you amazing, but you and Chris make such an extraordinary team. Seeing you both take pictures of our newborn baby girl was amazing. And now she is almost a year old and has become so hard to photograph, but you both made it happen. You both definitely pour your heart into your work...and it shows!
I just had to take a minute to tell you how much you mean to our family. Thank you for being there for us during our special life
events. From our wedding pictures to our newborn baby pictures to the wonderful Santa pictures at Christmas...they are all
AMAZING and we couldn’t be more pleased! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Everyone always asks us who took our
beautiful pictures and we proudly tell them and recommend you right away. We have known and loved you for years and would highly
recommend you to anyone and everyone. We can’t wait to see what beautiful pictures you will take in our future.
Thank you again for everything! You are such an amazing person and photographer and we are so blessed to know you.

Our love,
Jamie & James Davis

Dearest Carissa,
Words are inadequate to thank you enough for the extraordinary photographs that you have provided for our family. Since our first session (almost 13 years ago, can you believe it??!) you have done your utmost to produce  stunning photographs that truly capture the essence of your subjects!! I have worked with you in many situations and no matter what is going on around you, you handle yourself in a totally professional manner and always with that gorgeous smile on your face. You are more than willing to listen to suggestions and ideas that we may have and you always make the images exceed our expectations.  It has been a joy and a privilege to be associated with your business And as far as we are concerned, you are our number 1 photographer!!
We wish you continued success and Gods richest blessings.
Our love,
The Zoeller Family
Micaela and the gang!
New Braunfels, Texas

Hope to see you soon!!
Love and hugs and kisses to all the Duval’s️

Back in the summer of 2010, I was looking for a local photographer with an air conditioned studio in the Buda/Kyle area.  Texas summers are hot, and Carissa was the only photographer in the area that fit the bill.  So, I took a chance, and I’m so glad I did.  I walked away from that first session with the most amazing pictures of my little girl.  Carissa beautifully captured her in that moment.  

That’s exactly what Carissa has done every single time we have taken photos for the last ten years…she has snapped shots of her at every age perfectly.  With the help of her husband, Chris, and his silly antics, Carissa captures my daughter’s personality…her quirks, her moods, her silly faces, and her laugh.  She brings her to life in a photo. 

We have taken part in her regular sessions at the studio and on location, her snow sessions, her Santa sessions, and her bluebonnet sessions.  We share ten years of photo session memories with Carissa and Chris, and we just adore them as people, as well as photographers.  Their work is excellent, and I have a wall of canvases and lots of photos that tell the story of my daughter’s childhood.    

I couldn’t ask for a better photographer, or storyteller and friend, for my family, and I happily recommend Carissa.

My family has witnessed the talent and passion Carissa Hoopes Photography has for its clients on three different occasions and each time I leave thrilled with the outcome and customer service.  Carissa and Chris make an incredible team that customizes your session to fit each person’s unique style and interests.  A great deal of time is spent on planning your perfect photo setting and giving advice on clothing options and props.    Carissa has a kind and sweet personality that makes everyone feel comfortable and relaxed during the entire session.   I highly recommend Hoopes Photography to take care of your photography needs and to capture those once in a lifetime  moments that you will cherish forever.

Carissa’s bubbly and kind personality made my daughter’s Senior picture experience a fun and special occasion.  Her kind, enthusiastic and friendly attitude really put my daughter at ease and comfortable so she could relax during the photo shoot. 

Before the photo shoot, Carissa took lots of time with us to discuss location, props and the whole process.  Carissa was very open to taking our requests as well as adding her creativity and flair to the photos.  She had lots of clever ideas and poses that made the final pictures very memorable. After the shoot, she was very prompt about getting the phots to us and did a great job editing. 

I would highly recommend Carissa for any special occasion pictures.

Carissa Hoopes is a true artist.  Her photography captures the true spirit and image of her subjects.  She has taken pictures of our family for almost 20 years.  It is always a fun experience when she takes our pictures.  She and Chris (her husband and partner) are kind, considerate, professional, talented, fun, and funny.  While I love all of her pictures, today I want to highlight one special and magical picture. My daughter was 16 and was wearing a beautiful dress that was black with multi-colored flowers on them…she somehow muted the flowers and made the photograph magical by making it look like butterflies were flying from her dress.  Butterflies hold special meaning for my daughter, for her they mean rebirth and change. To her butterflies are soft, beautiful, represents her connection to her grandmother (my deceased mother) and to her spiritual side.  The lighting in the photograph is spectacular and striking.  This photograph is on a large canvas in our house and truly looks like a special piece of art.  I am so thankful for Carissa’s talent, gifts, creativity, inspiration, and passion.

I highly recommended Carissa Hoopes Duval and her husband Chris Duval for your photography needs. They have taken my family’s photos on three different occasions over the past 9 years and I’ve trusted them to take my son’s high school senior photos and most recently, his college senior photos. My only regrets are that I didn’t find them sooner and that I’ve only used them three times!  My daughter will be a high school senior in a few years and they will be the ones I trust to capture that special time in her life.

Carissa and Chris are so fun, easy going, personable and professional. They get real smiles out of my kids and you can tell they love what they do.  The turn around for getting edited digital images is impressive and I feel like they are the type that will go above and beyond for their clients.

Choosing Carissa Hoopes Photography will be a choice you will be so happy you made!
