Yesterday I ended up with TWO homecomings on the same day!😱 Thankfully everything was on schedule (which NEVER happens in the Marine Corps, speaking from experience😂) - My heart was so full by the end of the day because not only was I happy to see couples/families reunited, both of my clients are also close friends of mine. I’m so grateful that they chose me to capture such a special time for them. - Moments like these don’t happen often. But I will say having your spouse back from deployment is one of the best feelings on the planet.❤️ - Short story: When I was pregnant with Tommy, Jake came home from deployment the night before tommy was born. It was such a close call😩 • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #wanderingphotographers #littlethingstheory #belovedstories #steamyphotographer #justalittleloveinspo #authenticlovemag #floridaweddingphotographer #icelandweddingphotographer #hawaiiweddingphotographer #californiaweddingphotographer #losangelesweddingphotographer #texasweddingphotographer #couplesintimates #unconventionaltogs #belovedstories #destinationphotographer #centraltexasweddingphotographer #engagementphotos #floridaweddingphotographer #engaged #wildloveadventures #sandiegoweddings #sandiegoweddingphotographer #oceansideweddingphotographer #camppendletonphotographer #beltonweddingphotographer #houstonweddingphotographer #austinweddingphotographer #adventurouslovers #elizabethmathenyphotography

I am so freaking excited for this beach session tonight! It’s suppose to rain but we are going to embrace the weather😍 I WILL be in the water right there with them! - I love the beach. I’m really going to miss it when I leave in next year😭 but that’s ok because I know Texas has so much in store for me. Plus, I’m sure I’ll be back🤫😏 - That being said, don’t wait to book your sessions! Summer is about to come in full swing and before we know it I’ll be off.

If there is anything I’ve learned in life, it is to treat people the way you would want to be treated. This is so, so important in our community. - DO NOT let others bring you down. DO NOT allow others to bleed negativity into your life. People WILL try to tear you down to “bring themselves up” - This is all out of fear and jealousy. People who lack confidence will eat off of others. Block people from your life that do not support you. Erase the mental stamp they try to leave. FIND PEOPLE WHO TRULY SUPPORT YOU. - And lastly, give more than you receive. Help others, pass down knowledge, and be kind. Be genuinely and wholeheartedly kind. I love you guys. • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • Cake: @bitsnbitescakesho Florals: @thedaisyflowershop Catering: @gettasting #wanderingphotographers #littlethingstheory #belovedstories #steamyphotographer #justalittleloveinspo #authenticlovemag #floridaweddingphotographer #icelandweddingphotographer #hawaiiweddingphotographer #californiaweddingphotographer #losangelesweddingphotographer #texasweddingphotographer #couplesintimates #unconventionaltogs #belovedstories #destinationphotographer #centraltexasweddingphotographer #engagementphotos #floridaweddingphotographer #engaged #wildloveadventures #sandiegoweddings #sandiegoweddingphotographer #oceansideweddingphotographer #camppendletonphotographer #beltonweddingphotographer #houstonweddingphotographer #austinweddingphotographer #adventurouslovers #elizabethmathenyphotography

Last night was fire😍🔥 these two are freaking stunning. I will never get enough of dress blues! I miss wearing them myself!😩 - This location is so special to me. I love that it is on Camp Pendleton, because this has become like a second home to me. I’m truly going to miss it when we leave at the end of the year. All of my friends are slowly heading off as well and it’s becoming a lot more lonely out here as time flies😩 - Today is the first day in about 2 weeks that I have NOTHING to do. I am so happy to finally relax at home, spend time with my sick little man, and edit away❤️ I definitely needed a day off😩🙌🏻 - Have a happy Saturday everyone! • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #wanderingphotographers #littlethingstheory #belovedstories #steamyphotographer #justalittleloveinspo #authenticlovemag #floridaweddingphotographer #icelandweddingphotographer #hawaiiweddingphotographer #californiaweddingphotographer #losangelesweddingphotographer #texasweddingphotographer #couplesintimates #unconventionaltogs #belovedstories #destinationphotographer #centraltexasweddingphotographer #engagementphotos #floridaweddingphotographer #engaged #wildloveadventures #sandiegoweddings #sandiegoweddingphotographer #oceansideweddingphotographer #camppendletonphotographer #beltonweddingphotographer #houstonweddingphotographer #austinweddingphotographer #adventurouslovers #elizabethmathenyphotography

She was SUPER happy about her new shirt 👚🤦🏻‍♀️😂♥️

Congratulations to these love birds!🕊 I am so thrilled I was able to photograph one of my best friends weddings this weekend! These two had such a beautiful ceremony and some AMAZING BBQ😩 Y’all know how much I miss sweet tea, and gosh darn it, she had that too😭 - Sadly, I fly back tonight and will be having sweet tea withdrawals!😂 I am so grateful that I was able to spend some time with some family and friends back home as well, I definitely needed it❤️ - I hope you guys enjoyed my stories of Tommy! I’ve been soaking in this adorable stage in his life.

Excuse me for being all in my feels for a minute. Had a realization that without Justin I may never have met one of my best friends and that made me so sad. So grateful for her friendship and that her rbf rivals mine 🙄🤷🏼‍♀️. Look at the second picture if you wanna see what the first wedding photo I actually got 😂. #rhinosgreatadventure #elizabethmathenyphotography ps super grateful for my husband and that he “forces” Pyne to be my friend too 😂🙄🤷🏼‍♀️

As my son Thomas says, “ WOW, WOW, WAOOW” This momma was absolutely beaming. I almost wish I was pregnant again. Ok not really but still😂😍 - We hiked up this glorious hill to get to the top of this beautifully peaceful location. COMPLETELY worth it! I thought Jennifer would hate my favorite dead tree but when I pointed it out she was all for it! I’m so glad because it never lets me down😍🙌🏻 - All three spots at my Texas AirBnb location are booked!

This is it. It may seem like just an ordinary Tuesday for everyone else. But I officially am no longer working two jobs and am now a FULLTIME photographer❤️ - I am so grateful to be able to do what I love in life. I hated my old job, there were so many uncertainties and I never knew what I would be doing the next week, everything was so last minute. I am overjoyed that I finally took this leap of faith in myself. - Cheers to giving you guys, friends and clients, every last creative piece of me from here on out.

Sunday Funday!☀️ - I had such an amazing time with this beautiful couple! We galloped through the sand together and somehow landed ourselves at Denny’s for some blueberry pancake puppies😍😍 - And let me just take a moment to say WOWZA I have an amazing group of talented artists who are constantly bringing my photos to life with their skills. I can’t thank my beautiful MUA, Hair Stylist and florist enough! You guys deserve so much more credit than you receive! So go follow them and give them some love! - MUA: @kennedihernandezmakeup Hair Stylist: @theidoupdo Florist: @greenpumpkinfloral • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #wanderingphotographers #littlethingstheory #belovedstories #steamyphotographer #justalittleloveinspo #dirtybootsandmessyhair #authenticlovemag #floridaweddingphotographer #icelandweddingphotographer #hawaiiweddingphotographer #californiaweddingphotographer #losangelesweddingphotographer #texasweddingphotographer #couplesphotography #muchlove_ig #unconventionaltogs #belovedstories #loveandwildhearts #centraltexasweddingphotographer #loveandlensflares #floridaweddingphotographer #wildhairandhappyhearts #wildloveadventures #photobugcommunity #sandiegoweddingphotographer #oceansideweddingphotographer #camppendletonphotographer #timelesscouples #wildheartswander #adventurouslovers #elizabethmathenyphotography

YA’LL.😭 I’ve officially made it to round 11/12 in shoot and share and I am literally crying. - The contest started out with 583,150 photos and is now down to 1,000 photos per category. Do you know what that means? - That means one or more of my photos made it to the top 4.5% IN THE WORLD! I am so overjoyed. My heart gets so happy when I hear about any of my other photog friends getting this far as well! This contest is so uplifting. My week is made. - P.S. it has been a SUPER shitty week so there’s that.

Does anyone else get in random moods where they just throw on a full face of makeup just to do absolutely nothing?😂 Because this happens to me all the time😩🤦🏼‍♀️ - I have an opening in Texas for a couples intimate session on March 15th!

Thank God It’s Friday! - This week felt never ending! Who else is with me?! Thankfully I took some time to myself to just get creative.

Go check it out because his face is so cute😭🙌🏻 - Aside from that I am working on a styled shoot for this February with some amazing vendors! • @theidoupdo • @kennedihernandezmakeup - P.S. if you wanna create some hot, hot, hot magic, PM me and we can start your journey!🔥🍾🥂 - Amazing mentor: @chuyphoto • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #wanderingphotographers #littlethingstheory #belovedstories #steamyphotographer #justalittleloveinspo #dirtybootsandmessyhair #authenticlovemag #floridaweddingphotographer #icelandweddingphotographer #hawaiiweddingphotographer #californiaweddingphotographer #losangelesweddingphotographer #texasweddingphotographer #couplesphotography #muchlove_ig #unconventionaltogs #belovedstories #loveandwildhearts #centraltexasweddingphotographer #loveandlensflares #floridaweddingphotographer #wildhairandhappyhearts #wildloveadventures #photobugcommunity #sandiegoweddingphotographer #oceansideweddingphotographer #camppendletonphotographer #timelesscouples #wildheartswander #adventurouslovers #elizabethmathenyphotography

I’m holding a craft night tonight at my house!! Haha, most people don’t know but I’m actually super crafty, I just don’t have much extra time anymore! - So this Saturday is for the girls!!🍾🥂 If you wanna check out my personal page to see what I make (or what I’ve made) here’s the link!❤️ @elizabeth_matheny - Super excited to be taking a night off to relax and enjoy myself. Self care is SO important! Don’t forget to take some time to refresh every once in a while! • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #wanderingphotographers #littlethingstheory #belovedstories #steamyphotographer #justalittleloveinspo #togetherjournal #dirtybootsandmessyhair #authenticlovemag #floridaweddingphotographer #icelandweddingphotographer #hawaiiweddingphotographer #californiaweddingphotographer #losangelesweddingphotographer #texasweddingphotographer #couplesphotography #muchlove_ig #unconventionaltogs #belovedstories #radlovestories #loveandwildhearts #centraltexasweddingphotographer #montanaweddingphotographer #floridaweddingphotographer #wildhairandhappyhearts #wildloveadventures #heyheyhellomay #photobugcommunity #sandiegoweddingphotographer #oceansideweddingphotographer #camppendletonphotographer #elizabethmathenyphotography

Let me just start with the fact that Ally and Brian are the most perfect couple on the planet! You would literally think they were models if you didn’t know them!🌎 - They were completely stoked to come out on this little adventure with me! We walked quite a ways and got into the freezing cold water together😭😂🙌🏻 I cant express how much clients like this fuel my love for what I do😍 - There was so much laughter this evening and I find that to be so worth freezing our butts off!😂 - I’m always so afraid to bring clients onto long trails just because I know a lot of people don’t enjoy the outdoors as much as I do, but I’m thankful that these two were up for the task! (Anything for a great picture!)📸 - Until next time! I can’t wait to kick out some of this editing tonight😍 • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #wanderingphotographers #littlethingstheory #belovedstories #steamyphotographer #justalittleloveinspo #togetherjournal #dirtybootsandmessyhair #authenticlovemag #floridaweddingphotographer #icelandweddingphotographer #hawaiiweddingphotographer #californiaweddingphotographer #losangelesweddingphotographer #texasweddingphotographer #couplesphotography #muchlove_ig #unconventionaltogs #belovedstories #radlovestories #loveandwildhearts #centraltexasweddingphotographer #montanaweddingphotographer #oregonweddingphotographer #wildhairandhappyhearts #wildloveadventures #heyheyhellomay #photobugcommunity #sandiegoweddingphotographer #oceansideweddingphotographer #camppendletonphotographer #elizabethmathenyphotography

Trigger warning⚠️ - This post is far from my usual but I feel that this isn’t talked about enough. - Throughout my life I’ve lived through sexual assault twice and those were the serious cases. (I’m only 20) Growing up accepting my body was one of the heaviest burdens I had to bear. To be able to accept yourself after feeling like so little, like you mean nothing to the world, is something no human should ever have to pick them selves back up from. - You are worthy, you are beautiful, and you deserve to be kind to yourself. I’m here for all the men and women that have ever been stuck at the bottom of this disgusting pit, pretending that they’re OK when they’re not. This is your life, own that shit. Because it’s your story to tell. Did you catch that part? It’s your story. Don’t let anybody else tell it for you. YOU ARE WORTHY OF LOVE. You are worth LOVING YOURSELF. - There is someone out there that will understand you for all your triggers and they will love you regardless. They will be cautious of your mind and heart. I believe in you, they’re out there. But please, love yourself for the time being.❤️ • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #wanderingphotographers #littlethingstheory #belovedstories #steamyphotographer #justalittleloveinspo #togetherjournal #dirtybootsandmessyhair #authenticlovemag #floridaweddingphotographer #icelandweddingphotographer #hawaiiweddingphotographer #californiaweddingphotographer #losangelesweddingphotographer #texasweddingphotographer #couplesphotography #muchlove_ig #unconventionaltogs #belovedstories #radlovestories #loveandwildhearts #centraltexasweddingphotographer #montanaweddingphotographer #oregonweddingphotographer #wildhairandhappyhearts #wildloveadventures #heyheyhellomay #photobugcommunity #sandiegoweddingphotographer #oceansideweddingphotographer #camppendletonphotographer #elizabethmathenyphotography

This evening was hands down my favorite part of this weekend. After meeting these two for the first time, we were able to create some magic at such a beautiful location😍🙌🏻 - I accidentally stumbled across Lake Hodges on my way to work this last week and immediately knew it was perfect for these guys! It was just the cherry on top! - I am so fortunate to meet such amazing couples who enjoy a thrill and are willing to be crazy with me! During our session, we ran into the center of the road just to snap some stunning photos! I can’t wait to share more from this adventure! - Thank you so much for being you, you guys! This is definitely one for the books🍾 - Mua: @kennedihernandezmakeup • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #wanderingphotographers #littlethingstheory #belovedstories #steamyphotographer #justalittleloveinspo #togetherjournal #dirtybootsandmessyhair #authenticlovemag #floridaweddingphotographer #icelandweddingphotographer #hawaiiweddingphotographer #californiaweddingphotographer #losangelesweddingphotographer #texasweddingphotographer #couplesphotography #muchlove_ig #unconventionaltogs #belovedstories #radlovestories #loveandwildhearts #centraltexasweddingphotographer #montanaweddingphotographer #oregonweddingphotographer #wildhairandhappyhearts #wildloveadventures #heyheyhellomay #photobugcommunity #sandiegoweddingphotographer #oceansideweddingphotographer #camppendletonphotographer #elizabethmathenyphotography

It’s been a while since I’ve showed my face, so here it goes! - My name is, ever so clearly, Elizabeth. I just recently got out of the Marine Corps in Feb 2018 and have since endeavored on my journey as a photographer! I aspire to bring lovers closer and empower intimacy! - I have been married for a little over 2 years and have a 1 year old son named Thomas. He carries my heart every single day and I promise to teach him to work hard for what he wants in life and to never let anything or anyone stop you from getting to where you want to be. - Each and every day that we are alive is a miracle. Every moment that we experience is a once in a lifetime kind of chance. I feel that you must capture as many of these moments as possible, because eventually they will just be faded memories and PHOTOGRAPHS. - My purpose in life is to first, be a good mother, but secondly, meet couples, give them great memories, and have them leave my sessions a better wife, a better husband, a better lover. - Aside from that, I have an obsession with Eeyore and cereal😂🙌🏻 I’m also pretty crafty! - Taken by: @snyderrosephotography17 Edit: @elizabethmathenyphotography • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #wanderingphotographers #littlethingstheory #belovedstories #steamyphotographer #justalittleloveinspo #togetherjournal #dirtybootsandmessyhair #authenticlovemag #floridaweddingphotographer #icelandweddingphotographer #hawaiiweddingphotographer #californiaweddingphotographer #losangelesweddingphotographer #texasweddingphotographer #couplesphotography #muchlove_ig #unconventionaltogs #belovedstories #radlovestories #loveandwildhearts #centraltexasweddingphotographer #montanaweddingphotographer #oregonweddingphotographer #wildhairandhappyhearts #wildloveadventures #heyheyhellomay #photobugcommunity #sandiegoweddingphotographer #oceansideweddingphotographer #camppendletonphotographer #elizabethmathenyphotography

I know sometimes we tend to feel like the weight of the world is just resting on our shoulders, as if nothing in life feels worth while. We are blind to the BEAUTY and LOVE we have all around us. We forget how truly LUCKY we are to be alive each and every day. - When I first met these two, I instantly felt the love they had for one another. I could see it in the way he caressed her cheek as he kissed her, and in the way that he held her so tight. - Sometimes we need to just block out the rest of the world and invest into what is right in front of us. Taking a moment to dig deep and allow ourselves to be vulnerable to that special person that has carried our heart for so long. - So on those days that you feel like giving up. Like you can’t keep going on like this. Take a day with your SO and really explore every inch of each other. Find out new things you never knew about them. LOVE THEM. Because in the end, they will always be that person waiting at home with their shoulder to cry on. They will always have your back through the good, the bad, and the ugly. - Shout out to @chuyphoto for being such an amazing mentor and helping me break out of my shell so that I am able to create what my heart truly desires!🍾🔥 • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #wanderingphotographers #littlethingstheory #belovedstories #icelandphotographer #justalittleloveinspo #togetherjournal #dirtybootsandmessyhair #authenticlovemag #floridaphotographer #icelandphotographer #hawaiiphotographer #californiaphotographer #losangelesphotographer #texasphotographer #couplesphotography #muchlove_ig #unconventionaltogs #belovedstories #radlovestories #loveandwildhearts #centraltexasphotographer #montanaphotographer #oregonphotographer #wildhairandhappyhearts #wildloveadventures #heyheyhellomay #photobugcommunity #sandiegophotographer #oceansidephotographer #camppendletonphotographer #elizabethmathenyphotography

😍 After a visit to the beach, it's hard to believe that we live in a material world ♥️ #beachphotography #photography #beach #photographer #ig #beaches #nature #beachlife #ocean #travelphotography #lovephotography #californiaphotographer #amazingphotography #dirtybootsandmessyhair #muchlove #authenticlovemag #throughmylens #wildloveadventures #togetherjournal #photobugcommunity #elizabethmathenyphotography #wildhairandhappyhearts #loveandwildhearts #unconventionaltogs #radlovestories #firstandlasts #couplesphotography #belovedstories #wanderingphotographers #bhfyp @audiphotography @photriyavenky @daruphotography @officialphotograph_hub @photocriticgallery @photoshop @natgeo @discovery @moodygrams @moodyindia @indian.photography @indianphotographyworld @bibin_photography @world.travel.snapshots

100% my face when Justin agrees that he misses “home” with me, bc he knows that “home” really just means good Mexican food, Joes, Disneyland and our friends 🤷🏼‍♀️. Relationship pro tip: get your significant other hooked on the same food as you so when you move they wanna go back with you too 🙄. So grateful for the friends and memories that we have from CA that make us miss it even a little. #elizabethmathenyphotography #alreadypostedinbwoops

I had such an amazing time with @kennedi6_21 and @fernando_hernandezjr they are such a sweet couple and let me tell you, Ken's makeup is THE BOMB.COM! Literally having her do my makeup for the Marine Corps ball this year!😍❤ • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #wanderingphotographers #littlethingstheory #belovedstories #couplesphotography #justalittleloveinspo #togetherjournal #dirtybootsandmessyhair #authenticlovemag #throughmylens #photography #beachphotography #photographer #californiaphotographer #lovephotography #babyphotography #couplesphotography #amazingphotography #muchlove_ig #firstandlasts #unconventionaltogs #belovedstories #radlovestories #loveandwildhearts #babyphotography #portraitphotography #portraits #model #wildhairandhappyhearts #wildloveadventures #heyheyhellomay #photobugcommunity #elizabethmathenyphotography @authenticlovemag @loveandwildhearts

Three reasons why I’m excited to get married: Justin will wear his blues again (maybe for the last time though 😭), we get to take lots of pictures 😍, and I don’t have to go to a ball to wear a pretty/fancy dress 😏👏🏻 #rhinosgreatadventure #elizabethmathenyphotography (check my girl out, she’s 🔥)

It's been a hot minute since I've showed face and introduced myself on Instagram so here we go!😊 Of course my name is Elizabeth Matheny, im 20 years old. I am married to my husband, Jacob Matheny and have a 10 month old, Thomas. My family is my number 1 priority and they inspire every shot I take.📸 I am a Marine Veteran and chose to finally pursue my passion for Photography once I got out. I recently began working as an in home care giver and enjoy spending my free time in the ocean, hiking, and wherever else the wind takes me. I have 3 dogs, a cat, and 2 fishies! I am definitely an animal lover. I never want photography to be about the money, I fully believe in COMMUNITY OVER COMPETITION! Do EVERYTHING with kindness. My photos speak 1,000 words and that's MY story to tell. Every photographer has THEIR own story planted in the very compositions of each photo. BE YOU. Because that is what is special. That is what makes you different from everyone else. Tell YOUR story. Inspire others to learn, grow, and become something bigger than themselves. Invest into your community and help others remember why they started in this business. Or none the less, give clients keepsakes that they will cherish for a lifetime.

Thanks for taking all the pictures I could ever ask for. Thanks for being down for anything and everything. Thanks for petting my hair and telling me I’m pretty everyday. Thanks for taking cross country road trips for fun. Thanks for helping me work towards my dreams. I can’t wait for many more years filled with more of the same and many more years with lots of new adventures. #365dayswiththishunk #elizabethmathenyphotography #pawgraphy

These photos keep giving me all the feels, lots of stuff is changing soon and I’m so glad I have these to look back on forever 😍 also if your SO has a uniform that they kill in PLEASE take advantage of it. #peepthebabydolphinnails #elizabethmathenyphotography

Having an amazing support system isn’t necessary, but helps a lot. It’s ok to not be ok, and I’m grateful for the support and guidance that I get when I fall down and need help back up. Hoping for some big moves pretty soon. Side note: literally obsessed with these photos, my photographer, and her kid. Low key trying to not over share these beauties 🙄😍#elizabethmathenyphotography
