Minted Photo Op : Reviewed by Bethany

The beauty of Main Steet Mamas is the mom huddles that are continuously built around the city. As we know, this is no small feat. It comes with a lot of hard work! Minted & Main Street Mamas gifted the following photo session to Bethany as a thank you for all her hard work. She is creating a community for moms on the north side of the city that is incredibly appreciated! Thank you, Bethany!


I had received all of the mailings from Photo-Op By Minted, the emails, the online Social Media Ads and had no clue what they had to offer other than really nice Holiday Photo Cards. I had been frantically searching for a Holiday Mini Session that wouldn’t break the bank and not sacrifice quality! When suggested by a friend to try Photo-Op By Minted I was happy to look into the suggestion! WALAAAA…. just like that I found exactly what I was looking for but remained insanely skeptical because of the price and ease of booking. I’ve got to admit I’m a bit of a control freak… and this just seemed too easy! My friends have all been busy hiring photographers to capture the most perfect family holiday photo to mail off to relatives and friends… Usually spending $250-$1000. Minted allows you to book a 30 minute session and based on zip code provides you with different locations to take your photos ( In your home, Palace of Fine Arts, Chrissy Field… several others)… wait for it… for $100!!!!!!!! 


We arrived at Chrissy Field to be greeted by Brian the photographer, a friendly fellow San Franciscan who was more than happy to accommodate whatever request we had! He did a fantastic job and was even a good sport when our friend rolled up cheering behind our photoshoot in his classic car! Brian laughed and happily welcomed the car into the photoshoot to use as a prop with my husband and our 9 month old! All with the Golden Gate in the background what more could you ask for! Two days later our photos arrived and I was shocked! For $100 (Kindly gifted from Main Street Mamas) we had about 25 professional photos that we’re edited and ready for Holiday Cards! We also received the remaining unedited photos to keep! Minted also creates Holiday Cards for you based on their favorite photos that you have the option to edit and purchase! I enjoy making our Holiday cards so I have chose to personalize ours on my own using Minted. They are the same price point as the other online photo card options with a ton of sales and savings for the Holiday season! Not to mention the customer services was phenomenal! To sum this up… I booked our session on a Friday, had photos taken on Sunday, received my photos on Tuesday and now Holiday Photos and Cards are complete the week before Thanksgiving. That my friend… to me… Is a Mom Win! Follow this link to book your session for the Holidays and receive $25 off your $100 purchase! Photo-Op By Minted I just booked a session to gift our wonderful Nanny and her family because I was so impressed with the outcome! Happiest of Holiday to each of you and I look forward to seeing your favorite family photos!  -Bethany
