A trained art historian and a twenty-year veteran of the film industry, Cindi Osborn has curated museum collections throughout the U.S., worked as a stylist and location scout and produced award-winning commercials. In 2006, Cindi founded Mint Locations as a way to put her unique blend of industry experience and design expertise to work.
Now among the top location services in the Bay Area, Mint Locations represents over 300 remarkable homes and estates to host your very special occasion, film the next blockbuster or wrap the perfect catalogue shoot. Cindi's style, determination and integrity, along with a true joie de vivre, have made her a sought-after and trusted locations resource.
Currently she lives with her husband, a creative director, and her towhead tween son in two towns worthy of postcards - on the waterfront in Sausalito, California and in the mountains of Sun Valley, Idaho. When she's not managing Mint, she's spending time with her family and enjoying the views.
Born and bred in Idaho, Wrenn is a mountain girl with just the right amount of high altitude attitude to keep it real. She boasts a degree in Business from Arizona State, a keen eye for great style and an old soul - smarts, sass and sweets – our gal has got it all. As our Director of Operations extraordinaire, she works 365/24/7 to keep our locations locked in, our clients feeling like rock stars and our homeowners pampered – all on time and on budget.
When she’s not working (which is rare) you’ll find her - twinkle in her eye with a sunshine smile - riding the slopes with her golf swinging, fire fighting husband, or embracing all the adventure that is Sun Valley, with an Idaho potato vodka martini within reach.
Endless energy, die-hard determination, contagious candor and over the top optimism are her trademarks. Meet Doreen Cappelli, our Maven of Mintspiration is the right lady at the right time as we open the doors to our exclusive locations for extra special social and corporate gatherings. Doreen wields a cornucopia of experience to bring our vision for our Event Venues to life. Throughout her career she has been a connector with a knack for progressive and profitable relationships. Bringing together agencies, advertisers, and influencers in fresh and progressive partnerships that won the hearts of consumers from coast to coast. Now, at Mint Locations, our savvy matchmaker Doreen is the perfect partner to our tastemakers and their properties, finding the right fit for each and every occasion – love is in the air!
While she hails from Italian roots, Doreen is a California girl at heart. Equally at ease sipping wine in NorCal with her boyfriend or shopping in SoCal with her sisters, she is always in the know with who, what and wear!
Madison’s playful vibe and easy smile had us at hello. What started as a social media gig morphed into a full time Production Manager position and we’ve never looked back. Madison is our one stop shop for location inquires, scout itineraries, production bookings and detailed coordination of shoots. A native of the Pacific Northwest, Madison brings technical savvy, a canny knack for marketing and a healthy, youthful energy to our team.
Madison thrives in the outdoors and when she’s not plugged in she is exploring the wildness of Idaho with her beloved pups, Truper and Gus, hiking, mountain biking, camping or skiing with that same easy smile. Health and wellness is a lifestyle for Madison and if you’ve ever tried her homemade turmeric laced honey, your life will be changed forever - for the better - just like Mint Locations!
We happen to be four of the best women in the biz. With decades of industry knowledge, an extensive location portfolio and award winning customer service, we promise you’ll feel right at home.
I have been working with Cindi and her team at Mint Locations over the past few years, and our experience has been nothing but fantastic. Mint has a wonderful library of houses in Northern California that eBay has booked for their various fashion and home shoots, and we keep coming back!
Working with Mint on our recent Tempur Pedic shoot was a very personalized experience. Cindi works with only high-quality homes and owners that are truly interested in providing crews with great shooting experiences. We were beyond pleased with the locations we used from Mint and will very certainly be back again!
Scorpio in Corona Del Mar is beyond beautiful, even prettier in person! Mint is so wonderful to work with, I've worked with them many times and it's why I keep coming back. So helpful and accommodating and always makes the process super seamless. Would definitely recommend!
Mint has the best caliber and selection of locations. They vet their locations, homeowners & clients so each party understands & aligns on expectations ahead of the shoot. Having successfully worked with Mint for 15 years, this thoroughness ensures a seamless photo shoot for all. Cannot recommend Mint enough.
Cindi Osborn runs a first class operation, bringing in the best clients and vendors and making the process of hosting events at our property seamless and worry-free. Mint Locations is our first choice for event planning, hands down.
