If you're a hip and modern bride, why spend your wedding day with a cookie-cutter wedding photographer? I have been recognized as one of the "Top 10 Best Photographers" in Austin, TX by The Knot Magazine five years in a row (2010- 2014), and I am also a 4 time winner for Wedding Wire Couple's Choice Award (2011-2014).

With a background in fashion & editorial photography, I bring a distinctly stylized take on modern wedding photography. My work is the epitome of Austin, TX and everything you love about it -vibrant, unique, creative, and exciting! I treat you like family, and shoot your wedding like you are my best friend, no matter where you are from! In fact, about half of my couples are from out of town!

Cory photographed our wedding day and we are so, so happy with the results. The photos are stunning. She did an especially great job producing wonderfully vibrant colors and utilized the golden hour to get gorgeous ceremony shots. She and her assistant were able to get all of our bride/groom photos and family photos done at one time and in a professional manner. They brought the list of shots we provided and worked through them very efficiently. It was important to us to have photos of all our wedding guests, but we didn't want to spend the entire wedding day taking staged shots. She and her assistant did a great job of snapping candids and posed pictures of all of our guests throughout the night - we are so grateful to have these shots. It took her just under a month to get us the digital prints - plenty of time to order gifts for people before the holidays. Note that she does not do a "sneak peak" type thing where she posts some photos on social media right after the wedding - this wasn't a problem for us. Also, there was a snafu in the scheduling of the wedding day and Cory was not able to make it to take my getting-ready photos. To ensure she provided the amount of photographer time we contracted for, Cory and her assistant stayed at the reception until nearly the end and captured some fantastic dancing photos.

Cory photographed our rehearsal dinner at Vuca and our wedding at Fonda San Miguel in February of 2016 and we LOVED her and her work. We are the least photogenic couple ever and she somehow made us and our families look awesome. She is upbeat and fun without being cheesy, she got us our photos within a couple of weeks and she helped us get organized and stay on track during the wedding. We did do some posed pictures with family and just us, but a lot of the pictures are candid shots of our guests, which are really cool. She did a great job with night shots, which can be tricky. She also worked with us on the package (we just wanted the files, no books). I highly recommend her and her team - well worth the $$$ for your big day.

I can't begin to tell you how lucky we were to have Cory photograph our wedding at The Winfield Inn and our rehearsal dinner at Vuka! We were not interested in cookie cutter / typical wedding photos and she delivered the type of modern, fun photos we were after. She and her assistant were able to get in the middle of things and capture the fun, candid moments. She is especially talented in finding the right compositions as well -- most all of them are frame-ready! The prints she delivered were just gorgeous, I loved her used of color and black and white. In the age where we can all "doctor photos" in our iphones, hers were just perfect. I wouldn't touch them (and I work in film!) My one piece of advice is to definitely purchase her photo album package. She designed the most beautiful unique hard cover album I've ever seen. Everyone who comes over comments on how they have not seen a wedding book like ours. so worth the $$$.

Cory Ryan was our first choice in wedding photographers--we are so glad that we opted to work with her for our pictures! Cory was a delight to work with--available, flexible, open to direction and directing, and incredibly good at her job. She met us at a coffee shop for our consultation, and was available via phone, email, and in-person for subsequent meetings. She showed up promptly the day of the wedding, and got so many wonderful shots. She was so kind and funny during the pre-wedding jittery period, and even offered to politely and effectively help us wrangle wayward guests who would have jammed up our schedule. The pictures...THE PICTURES. They are so wonderful! She got so many great candid shots....everybody who has seen them has commented on how great they are. The colors are so vivid! The feelings of the day are so apparent! Everybody looks so happy and excited...we knew the shots would be good, but we didn't know just how wonderful it would feel to have our day memorialized by Cory and her assistant. We simply cannot say enough good stuff.

Cory is absolutely amazing! We eloped (sort of) and had originally opted not to have a photographer at our ceremony, but at the last minute, things changed, and Cory was able to just factor it in to the originally planned session. We LOVE all our photos- they don't remind me of any wedding photos I've seen! Cory has such an amazing eye, is SO easy to work with, and we could not possibly be happier with how things turned out!

Cory is an amazing photographer! We hired her for both engagement photos and our wedding photos and we couldn't be happier with how they both turned out! Cory is so easy to work with- she is professional, organized, kind and full of great ideas. She was great at coordinating with us ahead of time to make sure she knew exactly what we wanted. She is also very detail oriented, which took some weight off my shoulders! We also got both sets of photos done way faster than I thought. Our photos are so beautiful and Cory's eye can't be beat. I would recommend her to anyone, not only because of her great skills, but her ability to capture great moments that really reflect the couple's personality.

Cory Ryan is hands down the best photographer in Austin!! She is so easy to work with, super organized and has amazing ideas! From the very beginning she made sure she understood the vision my husband and I had. In fact, she made it a priority. She's fun-loving, energetic and makes the process super fun. She also makes you feel comfortable and always makes you laugh!! We couldn't have been happier with how both our engagement photos and wedding photos turned out. What I loved is while she had so many of her own amazing ideas she was always open to new ideas. It's obvious her number one priority is making the couple happy. If you're looking for a modern photographer with pictures that are clean and crisp and sharp--she's your gal! We couldn't believe how many compliments we received on our photos. She always knows how to use the light to make you look as good as you possibly can on the big day-both natural light and when using a flash. She's easy to talk to and always gets back to you right away when trying to get in touch with her. I would highly recommend her--you won't be disappointed!

Cory and her team are hands down amazing! Not only are we thrilled with the quality of the photos she took but we had a blast working with her. She has such a warm presence and energy, exactly what you want for your wedding day. She took so many candid shots that are full of emotion and capture the moment perfectly - candid shots that are actually worth framing - so rare! She worked with me to squeeze in a bridal portrait session the same day of the wedding and I could not be more pleased with how the photos turned out. I would recommend Cory to anyone and would certainly use her again!

I can’t say enough about Cory Ryan – she is FABULOUS to work with and has the most amazing pictures. When selecting a photographer I knew I wanted someone who was a little more creative than the standard wedding pictures while still capturing the classic wedding moments. We found that in Cory’s work and couldn’t be happier with all of our photos. She is fun to work with, makes you feel comfortable immediately, is creative and very personable. One of the other things we loved about Cory is her albums and other products. They are so creative, lively and very well made with attention to the finest details. We now have works of art out of our pictures that we can put on our coffee table etc. Her quality is the absolute finest and it shows in her end product. Overall Cory was extremely easy to work with from day one. She was very clear with her contract and flexible with customizing the package to what best fit what we wanted and our budget. She was quick to respond to anything that we needed and very thorough in her own information gathering to make sure she captured our wedding as we wanted. All of her staff and supporting photographers were incredibly professional and talented. I cannot recommend Cory Ryan enough! I can honestly say all the pictures from engagement photos to the wedding were a blast! Now the challenge is to figure out which photos will make our wedding album…there are too many good ones!

We could not be happier with the images Cory Ryan captured of our destination wedding in Park City, Utah! Despite having never photographed a wedding in the snow, Cory's pictures turned out beautifully and we have received rave reviews from everyone who has seen them. She was great at keeping us on our schedule and managed to fit in all the photos we wanted on a very tight timeline! If you are considering having a destination wedding, I would highly recommend using Cory -- she went out of her way to scout out the perfect locations for all of our photo sessions, and we probably actually got more creative photos using someone new to the area than if we had chosen a photographer who shoots in Park City every weekend!

We loved having Cory as our wedding photographer! She was lovely to work with from the very beginning and was prompt in communicating details and important information to us. She understood our vision and was able to capture our special day perfectly! She has a wonderful personality/energy, thus it was a lot fun to work with her (which is key, as you will be around your photographer for the majority of the day!). She also kept us on schedule in regards to wedding party/family photos. I highly recommend Cory's services, as she creative, organized, personable, professional, and highly skilled! A winning combination!
