What to Expect

By now you’ve probably seen the video and read all the reviews about Shoop’s Photography on Yelp, Wedding Wire or our Facebook Fan page, so hopefully you have an idea what a shoot with Amber is like. Whether it’s a boudoir, wedding, family or another type of portrait session, you can expect to have a FABULOUS time with Amber and her team!

How Much

We offer all-inclusive packages as well as a “create your own” option from a la carte items. Get started by reviewing our packages to see if any fit your needs. If not, build your own and submit it for a custom quote!

  • Portraits start at $175 (business portraits and mini-sessions not included)
  • Weddings start at $2200 (elopement packages available)

Most sessions include a pre-session consultation, as well as an in-person viewing party after your session that includes a beautiful set of 4×6 prints and a private online viewing party.

We appreciate the hard work and sacrifice made by those in the military. That’s why we always offer a 10% discount to all service men and and women.


Once you have decided that Amber is the photographer for you, please call or email the studio to schedule your session. Please have your calendar handy as we will also schedule your viewing/ordering party at time of booking. You will receive a personal consultation via email prior to your session to help you with style, clothing and location. You will be guided through the session every step of the way to ensure a comfortable and fun shoot. After your session you will receive a sneak peek to view online, followed by our scheduled in-person viewing party that takes place within 2-3 weeks of your session. At that time we can discuss your options for prints, wall art and other items to accent your home or gift for a loved one.

Communication is KEY! Make sure you tell us your expectations as well. Our goal is not only to have you walk away feeling wonderful about your experience, but to have you come back to us! We want you to brag to all your friends and family about what an awesome time you had!

Viewing Party

When you arrive for your viewing/ordering party, we will display your 20-30 best images from your session. We will take the time to hand select your favorite images and discuss the best way to display them in your home or in an album. These professionally printed 4×6 prints are yours to keep! It is best to have the major decision maker(s) at this meeting (and maybe get a sitter for the kids) as this is the opportunity to purchase items that will be on special that day only. Full payment for your order is required at this appointment, but payment plans are also available.

Your products will be delivered in the time frame discussed at your viewing party. Since many of our products are custom or hand made, the turn around time may vary.

Boudoir Parties

Twice a year we host a Boudoir Party in Sacramento. A boudoir party is a fun and affordable way to have your boudoir pictures done in an upscale hotel setting, or in our beautiful Folsom studio, with professional hair and make up. Our parties take place in the Winter (before Valentine’s Day) and in the Summer.

Here’s how it works:
Once your session/time slot for the current boudoir party is booked, you will arrive to the location with a clean face and clean, dry hair. You will have already been prepped on what to wear, what to do before your shoot, and what to bring. Your session is 100% private.

After your session, you will be contacted by our studio to set up your viewing/ordering session.

A retainer is required to book your session, and the remaining balance is due the day of the session.

Our next boudoir party will be January 2018.

Portrait Parties

Each year we host a number of Portrait Parties. A Portrait Party is a great way to have a session with Shoop’s Photography at a fraction of the cost of a private session. Check back here for the latest information on upcoming parties! If you’d like to host your own party (and get freebies for doing so) just contact us for more information!

Private Portrait Studio

Shoop’s Photography is proud to offer a beautifully designed private portrait studio in the heart of Historic Folsom. This space is ideal for newborn portraits, boudoir sessions, and business/professional portraits. We have a variety of backdrops (including an exposed brick wall) and props to choose from. Our guest area is comfortable and offers coffee, tea, water, wine & beer (for the adults). There is a private changing room as well as a changing table for babies.

We still offer the option to bring our studio to you if requested. There is an additional fee for this service. Our mobile studio is ideal for new moms that might be uncomfortable bringing their newborn out of the house. We also cater to corporate businesses with a large number of employees that need to be photographed on-site. And if a beautiful hotel room or private home is your ideal spot for your boudoir session, no problem! We will come to you.

Our Folsom Photo Studio is open by appointment only. However, if you are in the neighborhood, stop by to say hi or peek in the window. We are located at 803 1/2 Sutter Street, Suite 220 (upstairs next to the Curiosity Shoppe, above Dorothea’s and Hop Sing Palace).
