Hey there!





 I'm a wife and mommy. I'm slightly addicted to sweet tea and Chic Fil A's cookies and cream milkshakes. Wearing lipstick makes me feel all grown up (and like my life is  together)! I'm also a wedding photographer based in Virginia Beach and my passport is always ready when needed.  So take a look around and get to know the heart behind my little piece of the internet.




Weddings & Engagements


I Tell Stories

Let me begin by telling you mine, so you'll understand why I'm the best at telling yours.

My husband and I got married in 2013. We dated for over 6 years. My life isn't a fairy-tale and I certainly didn't do everything in order but we made it. And we are still here. The months leading up to our weddings put us in the same situation as many of you reading this.
Trying to figure out who to invite, did the bridesmaids order their dress, will my dress fit, what material the linens should be and asking ourselves if our day would be described as “timeless/classic” or more “authentic/elegant.”



You deserve your day to be surrounded by people who have a passion and dedication for what they do. That’s why we are solely wedding photographers. We do not dilute ourselves by trying to take on other types of photography work.

Do one thing and do it extremely well.
Tell your story with creative excellence.

That is what I offer my couples; couples who have great taste and sense of style, couples who are not afraid to let their emotions show, couples who value photography not as a commodity, but for the memories and artwork that I capture and create. Lastly, couples who know their story is what matters above all else. No matter what.


The passion and vision at myesha tamu photograpy


This is such an exciting time for you! I’m sure your mind is racing with all that needs to be planned. The perfect planner to execute your vision, the dress, the shoes, bridesmaids dresses and all the things while still loving on the amazing man who is about to be your husband. I get it! Trust me. I was a bride before I became a photographer. It’s all very exciting but it can also be somewhat overwhelming. You’re planning the day that you’ve been anticipating your whole life and yet you only get one shot at it! 


By the time you get the hang of it, the planning is over! My goal as a wedding photographer is to make this one aspect of the planning process simple. Photography is more than just images,  it’s a real part of your day.  Not only do you deserve beautiful images, you also deserve an amazing photographic experience.  My goal to help you plan your wedding day in a way that will  allow me to provide you with the BEST experience possible. I'll capture the those in between moments that will be a constant reminder of why you chose your #partnerforlife!
