Welcome, welcome! We’re so happy that our style caught your eye and brought you our way. We are Stancy Higley and Katie Pinson, the natural light photography duo behind Half Orange Photography. We specialize in outdoor celebrations, specifically destination weddings and elopements, and are available for travel worldwide.
Over the years, we’ve been blessed to celebrate with hundreds of couples, and find ourselves still smitten with beautiful weddings and great love stories. We love how every couple brings a unique story, vision, and style to the table, and we consider it a true privilege to capture this sweet season in your life. We take great pride in our work and relationship, and we pour our hearts into each wedding and session that we shoot. In order to provide our clients with the best experience possible, we accept a very limited number of weddings each year.
We're passionate about marriage, we're learning daily what it means to live a full and intentional life, and we firmly believe in celebrating often....even the littlest of things.
Our first and foremost desire is for our clients to feel completely at ease, taken care of, and genuinely celebrated. So please, pour yourself a glass of champagne, have a look around, and leave us a little note--we'd love to hear more about you!
What’s with the name?
A little while after we decided to go into business together, we sat down at the kitchen table with our husbands and had a brainstorming session to help us come up with a name- something fun that didn't seem to take itself too seriously, but also romantic, and of course, memorable. As we shot out suggestions, a thought came to mind: the Spanish expression for soul mate.
One of our very best friends lives in Madrid, Spain, and she once mentioned that in Spanish culture, the term for soul mate was "la media naranja," meaning, half orange. The phrase describes how two halves become whole once they are together, and each considers the other to be the better half- the missing piece.
Your soulmate, true love, better half, missing piece- is your Half Orange.
