We love short walks on the beach, friendly people, and capturing true emotions on your wedding day. Our style is natural and timeless - we want you to love your photos and will go above and beyond to make sure you do. If you're into photos that capture who you are and you'd like to make two new friends in the process, keep scrolling, We can't wait to meet you. 

Looking for something in particular? Here's where to start:

Hi, we're Vaughn Photography!

wedding photography in Colorado & worldwide

Quoting The Office, sipping on chai tea lattes & a darn good sense of humor. You can find me at a local coffee shop researching puppies for sale or editing photos when I'm not behind the lens.

what I'm known for:

I'm almost always wrapped up in a blanket or a sweatshirt and I'm a sucker for a good bonfire and some country music. I married my college sweetheart (that's a thing, right?) and now we've settled down in Colorado Springs, CO. I love travelling, most kinds of music, roller coasters and photography. Think we might get along? Then I can't wait to meet you! 

I'm from Portland, Oregon, but less hipster than you might expect... which may be due to my time living in Texas, Tennessee and now Colorado

MEET Malia

Being tall (before you ask, I'm 6'8"), dominating at Fantasy Football, playing Settlers of Catan & botching song lyrics. Seriously. I thought the lyrics to the song "Parachute" were "Pair of Shoes". Malia got a good laugh out of that one...

what I'm known for:

When I'm not serving as my wife's assistant, you can find me playing basketball, singing in the shower or picking up Malia's shoes. I love Monopoly, strawberry lemonade, cool weather and calling my wife a cougar (she's less than a month older than me). The rest of my time is mostly consumed with binge watching Netflix shows and checking up on my Fantasy Football teams. 

I'm originally from Illinois, I loved the Cubs before they were good & I'm a bit OCD which doesn't always mesh well with Malia's "creative side..." 


We've never met a stranger, only friends we haven't made yet! We're family oriented and want you to feel comfortable every step of the way. Sound good to you?

We treat you like family.

what makes us different

We treat you like family because we want to be more than just your photographer. We want to share in your joy, excitement, and laughter. We want to really get to know you and form a relationship that goes beyond just pictures. 

We believe in relationship.

what makes us different

We don't want any awkward, stiff pictures - we want to capture you being you. If you're into authentic photos that showcase you and your relationship, we've got you covered. 

We believe in authenticity.

what makes us different

Vaughn Photography is the absolute best! Malia and her husband, Luke, are a great team and were able to capture all of the shots we wanted quickly and efficiently. They were professional and so fun to work with and became like family by the end of our wedding. We were thrilled with all of our pictures when we got them back. The quality and colors were stunning and they managed to capture every detail/event/group photo that we wanted. We would highly recommend Vaughn Photography!

 Malia is amazing! She made our day perfect and we are obsessed with how our wedding photos turned out. She gave great direction and was so creative with each photo. We can't wait to book with her again soon! We recommend Vaughn Photography for all of your wedding needs!

Now I may be slightly biased in saying that these two are THE BEST photographers out there, but they truly are. Malia was impressively quick and yet very thorough capturing every single moment of our wedding and If you need someone to go the extra mile and talk to misbehaving family or make sure everyone is in their correct place during pictures Luke is definitely your guy. Pictures speak a thousand words and every single one of ours will hold a special place in my heart forever. Such a great team and great skills.

We could not be more thrilled with both our engagement and wedding photos from Vaughn Photography. We are not big on having our photos taken, and Malia and Luke went the extra mile to make us comfortable during our engagement session - which paid off even more by the time of our wedding. Their style is elegant, and they are able to capture the candid moments and details you want just as well. 

Malia and Luke went the extra mile to make us comfortable

We were struggling to find a photographer for our wedding that we felt a sense of home, comfort and trust with and they delivered! They came all the way from CO to small town Fredericksburg, TX to do our wedding. We are so very thankful for their friendliness, professionalism, efficiency and laughter they brought to our day! They took a huge load of worry off our shoulders and created photos we will forever cherish!!

These two were prayers answered & more!
