Portrait Photography at Rice University

Welcome, and thanks for your interest in photography at Rice.  Every year, hundreds of couples and individuals schedule bridal, engagement and other professional portrait photo sessions on our campus. Rice is proud to be a part of these special memories for so many of our Houston neighbors.

To assure that the daily business activities of the university do not interfere with portrait shoot reservations, and vice versa, Rice has established a two-step system of photographer registration and photo session reservations:

1. Professional portrait photographers must first register (this places them on a list of approved campus photographers for one year).  

2. Registered photographers may then visit our photo shoot registration calendar to schedule one-hour portrait reservation sessions for their clients.

As a reminder, registered portrait photographers agree to follow campus portrait photography guidelines. For permission to photograph anywhere other than standard portrait photography locations, or for other photography-related questions, please email welcome@rice.edu.

While Rice's face mask policy recently has been updated, please remember to practice social distancing when on campus. For the most up-to-date campus COVID-19 policies, please click here.

Thanks for your interest in photography at Rice.  We hope to welcome you to the campus soon.
