Isaiah and Latasha Haynes are wedding and portrait photographers based out of the beautiful Pacific Northwest, in the city of Tacoma, WA. They focus on weddings and engagements, high school seniors and families. They believe in the idea of sharing and investing and growing the industry, so you can often find them working hard on their own educational endeavor, The BLINK Conference, a boutique conference for photographers that focuses on empowering and providing leadership to photographers of all kinds to grab hold of their businesses and prosper.
We are passionate about this industry and we are even more passionate about equipping photographers to have the tools they need to find success with their businesses.
While finding our way, we realized the disconnect between diversity in the industry and made it our mission to close that gap and that is reflected in everything we do.
When we first started shooting, we couldn't afford many of the opportunities and workshops that were available for newbie photographers to learn and grow, so we really utilized the free communities online and locally to building relationships and to learn the trade. It was those years that shaped who we are as people in this industry and have helped us to value the journey.
We value growth and we believe that talent is 20% of the journey of survival, that businesses grow and sustain when strategy is behind them and the muscle to support them.
We want to see photographers have access to education that is both valuable, but diverse, in areas that matter to them, whether that be gender, race, diversity in geography or in area of focus. We love weddings, families, seniors and have chosen not to specialize because shooting those things make us happy. We know there are so many other photographers out there just like us, that are wanting to carry out their businesses the same way and we want to help you!
We live and breathe COMMUNITY. We want to model it and most importantly, we want to help YOU build your very own community within your marketplace and help you grow your own profitable business.
