Introduction: Through excellent photography and customer service, and because I am truly interested in providing you with the best photography I can within your budget. I could do a lot of other things (and have) but I am a photographer because I because I believe I can provide you with photographs you & I both will love. I enjoy people and getting to know them - even in short conversations - and then wowing them with awesome photography. I also like to be inspired, and I find inspiration not only in the people I meet but in architecture, products, travel and nature. I am lucky to be able to work in a profession that introduces me to an ever changing but always inspiring world.

Headshot Photography

For my first time getting acting headshots, Mary helped me feel super comfortable with her knowledge and professionalism the entire photo shoot! I’m extremely happy with how the headshots turned out and would recommend working with Mary to everyone.

I found Mary Rice photography exceptionally professional. Mary made recommendations that worked very well for the purpose of my photos. Once I chose the photos I liked, they were edited and available for download in less than 24 hours. I do recommend and will use Mary’s photography again.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    If the client is interested in my services but their budget is less than what's listed, please contact me anyway and I'll see if there's not a smaller package I can offer and still accomplish your interests/needs. We may just end up being a perfect match.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We exchange texts or emails or phone calls re your interests and budget and once we settle on what it is we'll do, we schedule the session. I'm happy to offer tips on wardrobe or locations or backdrops. I make every effort to make the client comfortable and at ease. Often showing them the photos right out of the camera is a good way to do this.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have an Associate's degree in Visual Communication with a Concentration in Photography from Nashville State. I have assisted Rachel Paul in commercial photography and receive ongoing education through the professional organizations to which I belong: the Professional Photographers of America, the Professional Photographers of Middle Tennessee, and the American Society of Media Photographers. My work has been published in many publications and juried into gallery exhibits all over the country.
