#MeetTheMindells: Our Engagement Photos!

Joshua Tree Engagement Session

Eeeeep! I’m so happy we finally get to share more of our engagement session with Katie Stoops today! And better yet, Green Wedding Shoes is sharing the whole thing and an amazing video by Naz Films. We headed to Palm Springs and Joshua Tree for these photos and had fun frolicking around the desert. We aren’t the super sappy/romantic type, so we knew we wanted a good mix of “Oh hey, we love each other!” and crazy unexpected fun! (Read: pool party!) Here’s a few peeks, but pop on over to GWS for the full scoop! HOORAY!

DIY Giant Gem Rings

DIY Giant Gem Rings

Oh just some gigantic gem rings. I’ve been sitting on this DIY for a few months now, ever since I found these ice cube molds and KNEW I had to make some big ol’ rings. When ban.do sent me that gem-i-ifed mug, I knew I had to bust this one out. And wanna know what these bad boys are made out of? HOT GLUE! Yep, it’s true. And now i want to make all the things with hot glue. All of ‘em. But first, let’s make some jewels.

The Making of Studio DIY HQ

The Making of Studio DIY HQ

Lately, life has been a little crazed, to say the least. With a wedding coming up in two months, a big behind the scenes project and the start of Halloween costume shoots… sleep is a hot commodity around these parts! While I play a little catch up before heading to Chicago for Lauren’s wedding tomorrow, I thought it would be fun to share a bit of the total insanity that happened in the studio before it had its pretty debut! This is as real as it gets, folks. And frankly, these photos are closer to what the studio looks like on a daily basis. (Like yesterday, after a 7 hour shoot!) I like to call it organized chaos. Jeff likes to call it “Are you ever going to clean up?”

And if you don’t really care what went into the studio, but you like games… you can play spot the fairy piñatas. They hung out for a good few weeks before they became those crazy dancing emojis! Either way, click through for to reveal the craziness! READ MORE
