Vaughn Photography was founded by husband and wife duo, Luke and Malia Vaughn in Memphis, TN. We specialize in natural light photography, but never back down from a challenge! While Malia is in charge of the creative aspects of the business, Luke stands by as a right hand man to make sure everything goes smoothly during (most) photo shoots.

Thank you for choosing Vaughn Photography! We're excited to work with you.
We are located in the Memphis, TN area. We have no set location, but some of our most common photoshoot locations include Shelby Farms, Wolf River Greenway, and even in your backyard! If you have other ideas for where you'd like your photoshoot to take place, let us know! We love to explore new areas.
We can't tell you exactly what to wear since we don't have access to your closet, but we can give you a few tips!
Clothing we love:
Don't be afraid to dress up! We love softer colors and anything with texture, layers, and flow. As for makeup and hair, choose a look that you love! If you can, professionally done hair & makeup looks great in photos, but it's not a deal breaker if you choose to do your own. While we do recommend you wear slightly more makeup than usual to enhance your natural beauty, make sure you still look like yourself.
When taking photos with other people, try to agree on a color palette and choose outfits that compliment each other. For example, a color scheme we love for winter is tan, olive green, and denims. For little ones, make sure they're comfortable in their outfit, or else it'll show that they're uncomfortable in their pictures. Same goes for grown ups! Make sure you feel comfortable and confident with your look, because it'll show if you're not!
Things to avoid:
Avoid large logos, graphics, obnoxious or small patterns (they tend to get distorted in photos), sneakers and athletic clothing. When taking group photos or photos with multiple people, don't try to match colors since they end up clashing if the colors aren't an exact match. For the ladies, make sure that your hair matches your outfit; If you're wearing a casual dress with an elaborate up-do, chances are your pictures aren't going to turn out the way you hoped.
If you're still unsure of what to wear, contact us or bring a few options to your photo session! We'll be happy to help you perfect your look.
