We are SO excited to announce that the Mandato Family is officially moving into our brand new, DREAM FARMHOUSE!! Ever since Joey and I have been together, this was something we dreamed of for our family. We will be moving to Hanover, PA (right across MD line) to get closer to Joey’s work so our family has more time together! To my Maryland clients: DON’T worry, I’ll still be the same distance to Baltimore and close to Frederick- so I will continue to shoot in Maryland as usual and going forward! But I will be able to expand and take on more PA clients! We are so excited to make beautiful memories in this home as a family and welcome our sweet baby boy to our forever home in January! Time to make this house a home! ❤️🏡
I love these sweet personal vow books from Kasey + Bradey’s wedding! I just think personal vows are so special, whether you share them with everyone during the ceremony or you just share them with each other. It’s a way to say more than just traditional vows... and occasionally add in something funny- my husband told me he “always promises to give me a bite of his food” and now every time I try to take a bite I say, “honey your the one who said it in your vows” haha
The CUTEST and sweetest couple I love, during golden hour, at a tree farm?! It doesn’t get better than this! I love these two and getting to take shots of them for Xmas year after year... what a fun session this one was!!
MY BABY SISTER IS ENGAGED to her best friend + soulmate!!! Johnny and Emily have been together basically since they were 10 years old. She’s always known it was him, and so have the rest of us. I am so thankful that she has found the most amazing man to spend her life with! And I’m so glad I can officially refer to him as my brother in law, even though I’ve been doing that for years 😂 Love you both SO insanely much, we are over the moon for you!! My sister, my best friend, my other half... time to plan a wedding!!! 💕💍

I love engagement sessions and getting to spend time with my couples... especially when they bring their puppy!! 😍 Here’s a peak from Emma + Austen’s engagement session! I can’t wait for their big day in July at @pondviewfarm2601 ! (Pond View is the best venue ever, but I might be biased since that’s where Joey + I got married!!)
“Your the only one who knows what my heart sounds like from the inside” ❤️ 33 weeks so far of loving you, feeling you grow, feeling your tiny kicks, wondering who you’ll be and what your sweet cries will sound like. Oh sweet boy we can’t wait to meet you in January... can’t wait to snuggle you, lose sleep with you, and make memories of our little family. Our hearts are already so full, I can’t imagine how they’ll feel when your on the outside of my belly! ❤️But we can’t wait to find out!! 📸: @brittanydefrehn 💄: @makeupbyvictoriao
MY BEST FRIEND IS GETTING MARRIED TOMORROW!!!! I am so excited for Missy + Matt to tie the knot at the stunning @corkfactoryhotel ! Matt is the perfect match for missy and I am thrilled that he is a part of our family! I can’t wait to stand by her side as a bridesmaid and watch her marry the man of her dreams! I am thankful I was able to shoot their engagement session, but I’m looking forward to enjoying tomorrow as a bridesmaid and letting the awesome @trans4mationphoto handle things! Party time!!!
These two are giving me all the Christmas feels with this amazing red truck they had for their engagement session!! I can’t wait for their big day in September at @walkersoverlookmd ! Love them!!
Tuesday ring day... that’s a thing right? ☺️💍
