My name is Justin Vaughn and I am a Fashion styled portrait photographer from Chicago. I've been and avid photographer since 2011, quickly turning my passion and technical ability into freelance work. My collection of images are photographed through my unique vision of the world as I explores the fine lines between the standard, commercially-acceptable portrait genre and the beauty discovered in bending of the rules of photography.
I'm a, go with the flow type of person, so very easy going. When photographing, my intentions are to let the personality of each subject shine artistically and to make every person that stands in front of my lens feel beautiful. More importantly I want each person to feel completely free to express their true self and to capture the very moment when that happens.

Justin is simply amazing! He is more than just a photographer, from the start he offered endless support, advice, and guidance. From our first meeting to our engagement photos we knew we were in good hands and couldn't wait to continue our journey with him. On the day of our wedding Justin and Tony went over and beyond for us. They were so professional and respectful to everyone that allowed us to relax and enjoy our day. The quick sneak peaks we received throughout the day made us excited for what was to come. They both are extremely talented and the results were phenomenal. If you are thinking of booking with him, just do it. You will not be disappointed! We can't wait to use him in the future!!!! Thank you Justin for everything you did this year!!! Love, Emily and Kelly More...

My husband and our 1 year old wanted a fall photoshoot. Who knew it was supposed to snow that day?! Justin did an amazing job with our photos. He worked patiently with our son who was not smiling much, but Justin was able to make him smile for the pictures. Thank you so much! A year later we still get compliments on your photos. More...

Justin is a phenomenal photographer!! He goes above and beyond for every project! I came to him with an idea for a birthday photoshoot (for myself) and even though I am normally very shy in front of a camera, he made me feel comfortable and confident! And when he showed me the photos, I felt like a frikken supermodel!! The images and the experience far exceeded anything I could have imagined! THANK YOU JUSTIN!!!! More...
