Michaela Beach

F O U N D E R | O W N E R


I started Lorraine Photography in the Fall of 2017. A little about me, I have had a camera in my hands ever since I can remember. My hobbies growing up were dance, horse riding, and photography. My passion is people, and what better way to express that than by capturing their moments in time that will last forever? I am blessed to be able to do what I love for a living.


Full disclosure, if you hire me to photograph your wedding, the odds of me crying happy tears while capturing your ceremony are pretty high.


Thank you for your time! Leave a message for me on my Contact page if you have any questions.

Who Is Lorraine?


Lorraine is my middle name. I am a fourth-generation Lorraine. The name Lorraine means Warrior, Strength Of God. I named my photography business Lorraine because I wanted to be reminded daily of the legacy that came before me and the legacy I want to leave behind. It keeps me grounded and reminds me that life is bigger than what I can see in the present moment. Everything I do today impacts tomorrow.

Plus, I just like the name!

Lorraine Photography




"Michaela Beach is our costume designer! She fit our entire wardrobe department in her truck, which often made it look like she robbed a police department. She stepped it up whenever I slipped up and made sure everyone was fitted and happy and in character. “Do you have your glasses? OK. Do you have your watch?!”
