Latasha Haynes of Ike and Tash


Latasha Haynes is one half of the husband and wife wedding and portrait photography team, Ike and Tash, based out of Tacoma, WA in the Pacific Northwest. Tash met her husband on Myspace and they have been married for almost 10 years. It’s because of her 3 year old daughter, Wisdom, that she values being a memory maker even more. She has been blessed to follow her dreams and do what she loves, shooting portraits of gorgeous families, sassy high school seniors and weddings across the country and internationally, as well as teaching, speaking and helping other photographer’s around the country grow and strengthen their business.

Tash believes in leveling the playing field by using her personal privilege to uplift those around her who might be overlooked and supporting and connecting people to opportunities that will launch them into their destiny. Tash and Ike do this via one on one mentorships, their online communities, Mastermind and Inner Circle groups, shootouts, workshops and their annual boutique conference called ‘BLINK Conference’.
