Hundreds of the industries most elite gathered in Los Angeles, California this past weekend to celebrate the 50th birthday of the legendary music mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs. From decked out ballroom gowns to laced tuxedos the entire night was one to remember.

Last night was one of those nights I’ll never forget. But something that sticks out to me is what my young creative @kaito put together with @vanityfair. All I can say is wow!! I’ve watched you grow from just a photographer to someone who captures beautiful art. Looking at these images makes me so proud. Thank you King! #DIDDY50 and thank you @natmoar
To help capture the magical night Diddy hand selected one of the most talented young directors and photographers in the game, twenty two year old Kaito Araujo.
It is a well known fact that Diddy hand picked Araujo as his personal photographer a few years ago when he was only 19. From then on the rest is history.
Araujo work from Diddy’s shindig is currently circulating throughout social media as he gracefully captured iconic photographs in partnership with Vanity Fair. Images of big names such as Mary J Blidge, Usher Raymond, Cardi B, Offset, Lizzo, Snoop Dogg, Regina King, Chadwick Boseman, Taraji P. Henson, Kelvin Hayden, Jay Z and more have literally gone viral since being released.
