Go to your controller SendEmailController and paste below code

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Mail;
use App\Mail\SendMail;
use App\UploadImage;

class SendEmailController extends Controller
{

function index()
{
return view('send_email');
}
public function store(Request $request){
$request->validate([
'name'=>'required',
'email' => 'required',
'image'=> 'required',
]);

$resume = time() . '.' . $request['image']->getClientOriginalExtension();
$imagesendbymailwithstore= new UploadImage();
$imagesendbymailwithstore->name = $request->name;
$imagesendbymailwithstore->email = $request->email;
$imagesendbymailwithstore->image = $resume;
$imagesendbymailwithstore->save();

// for mailling function working
$imagesendbymailwithstore = array(
'name' => $request->name,
'email' => $request->email,
'image' => $request->image,

);
Mail::to($imagesendbymailwithstore['email'])->send(new SendMail($imagesendbymailwithstore));
$request['image']->move(base_path() . '/storage/app/public', $resume);
return back()->with('success', 'Thanks for contacting us!');

Then make a view page send_email.blade.php

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<title> send a mail with Attachment </title>
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.1.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.6/css/bootstrap.min.css" />
<script src="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.7/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>
<style type="text/css">
.box{
width:600px;
margin:0 auto;
border:1px solid #ccc;
}
.has-error
{
border-color:#cc0000;
background-color:#ffff99;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<br />
<br />
<br />
<div class="container box">
<h3 align="center">send a mail with Attachment using laravel 5.8</h3><br />
@if (count($errors) > 0)
<div class="alert alert-danger">
<button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="alert">×</button>
<ul>
@foreach ($errors->all() as $error)
<li>{{ $error }}</li>
@endforeach
</ul>
</div>
@endif
@if ($message = Session::get('success'))
<div class="alert alert-success alert-block">
<button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="alert">×</button>
<strong>{{ $message }}</strong>
</div>
@endif

<form method="post" action="{{ route('sendemail.store') }}" enctype="multipart/form-data" role="form" class="form-horizontal" id="location">
{{ csrf_field() }}
<div class="form-group">
<label>Enter Your Name</label>
<input type="text" name="name" class="form-control" value="" />
</div>
<div class="form-group">
