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!

Cory Ryan did an amazing job from day 1 including the bridal shoot and all aspects of our wedding. She kept regular contact with us well in advance of the wedding and was very organized leaving one less detail for us to worry about on our wedding day. Cory is very professional, punctual, creative, and truly seemed to care about what was most important to us. I was most impressed with the end product and after receiving all of our wedding photos, I felt like I was able to relive the wedding at a much slower pace. As everyone told us, try to take a step back and take it all in. Well, that seemed very difficult during the wedding as we were having too much fun. In the end, Cory captured the most important parts of the wedding and I felt the photos were a great representation of our wedding day and all it entailed. We enjoyed having Cory shoot our wedding and would highly recommend her to anyone!!!

Cory was amazing and finding the photographer was one of the only things I left up to my husband. I told him this is the one things we couldn't skimp out on. :) She was so easy to work with and made me feel extremely comfortable. For my bridal portraits, I had listed some great locations for the photos, but she told me she wanted me to come up with some great locations that were more unique to me. I am so glad she did.... I could not be happier with the portraits and the locations that we came up with. We also love the wedding photos. She was so professional and fun to work with. Half the time we didn't even see her! We were also pleasantly surprised when we got all of the photos back in about a month and how beautiful they turned out! She got some amazing pictures! She was quick, professional, and a delight to work with! Everyone loves the pictures! I would definitely recommend her!

I cannot recommend Cory enough! I really loved working with her and loved her professionalism and competence! The photos look amazing! I am not a photogenic bride and I felt like these photos really make me look great. My family and my husband and everybody just looked awesome int he photos and she captured some beautiful moments.

My advice to brides would be that you actually spend a lot of time with your photographer on your wedding day, the most important day of your life. And so you should pick someone who you actually like as a person and enjoy being around and I think Cory is incredibly likeable and fits that bill. Also, you are entrusting your photographer with the memories of your wedding. That is a HUGE deal. You want someone responsible who is responsive, has an office, answers emails quickly, has professional contracts, and makes you feel encouraged about your photos. I really loved that Cory got us our photos in a month and there are hundreds of them and they all look great.

Highly Highly Recommended!

Cory was the one part of our wedding I did not have to think twice about or worry about at all! I knew the minute we got engaged that I wanted her to be our photographer. Her smile alone makes anyone around her feel happy. I love every single photo she took and she truly captured the essence of what that day was about for us. I look at the pictures and remember exactly what was going through my mind at that moment. She is an excellent wedding photographer that I highly recommend!!

I cannot say enough great things about Cory Ryan! When planning our wedding the one recommendation I received from all my married friends was to not skimp on photography and I'm so glad I listened. My husband scoured through tons of Austin photographers' websites and was not impressed until he came across Cory Ryan Photography. She will commemorate your wedding day with the most beautiful photos possible and was such a pleasure to work with. If you are lucky enough for her to be available on your wedding date, do not hesitate to book her immediately!!

Cory was an absolute joy to work with: she was flexible, professional, creative, and very open to our ideas. Perhaps what was most amazing was that she made our wedding photo shoot a thoroughly enjoyable experience: her happy, open, and easy-going manner helped us just to relax and have fun. The resulting photographs, which she got to us in timely fashion, are just incredible - stylish, unique, and utterly evocative of a wonderful day. We could not recommend Cory more highly.

After the wedding she continued to be responsive, helping us get photo prints and make orders, etc. She makes you feel very taken care of from beginning to end.

Cory Ryan was simply amazing in every aspect of what she did at our wedding. She offered fantastic suggestions to us along the way, suggestions that ended up making all the difference in the world. She was responsive, flexible, punctual, and above all else, fun. We had FUN with Cory. Her photos reflect that. I cannot say enough good things about working with this wonderful professional. She was simply fantastic. She managed to take very candid photos without ever getting in anyone's way, without most people ever noticing that she was there. It was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend this woman for any function that you need documented. She was/is a pleasure to work with.

Cannot say enough great things about Cory! Our pictures are truly fantastic - we have hundreds and hundreds of beautiful reminders of our "big day" and the rehearsal dinner the night before - and she captured so many things that we missed! Really beautiful shots of our family and friends and all the little things that made our day special. A number of people have commented on how our photographer seemed to be "everywhere" all at once.

We went into the wedding wanting a truly exceptional photographer because the photos are one piece that can be treasured for a lifetime (or longer), and we got that with Cory! She was personable, flexible, had great ideas, was able to tell my now-husband to stop oversmiling in the nicest possible way (thanks, Cory) and really has given us a wonderful gift with her outstanding talent. I recommend Cory wholeheartedly!!

Cory did an amazing job photographing our wedding at Laguna Gloria in Austin, TX. #1: She is super professional. For example, we only booked her for 2 hours (b/c we eloped and married in a private ceremony). And, she was on time, efficient, and didn't dilly-dally with anything. She used the most of our 2 hours to capture as many shots as possible, and was on top of everything. She was also quick with email responses. ...Great overall "customer service" (if that's the right word for it). She's a real pro! #2: She is also innovative and helpful (not pushy) in offering advice and tips. For example, we planned to marry outside, but the pouring down rain caused us to move indoors and she knew exactly where we should stand to capture great light. Moreover, she was prepared with rain guards and an assistant if we did still want to marry outdoors. We came with giant clear umbrellas, so it was really our call and she was down for whatever we wanted instead of pushing us in one direction! AND- I'm glad we took her suggestions!!! #3: She has a great attitude, which makes all the difference. Photos are going to capture your mood!!! If you have an irritating photographer or someone who looks like they don't want to be there, or someone who isn't smiling, or looks stressed, or isnt personable, its going to come through in photos. She made it comfortable and easy. For example, she was all smiles when we pulled up and it really made me excited. She was positive and reassuring that our last minute change-of-location was going to look amazing- and she was right. I actually think the photos were better indoors. The pictures looked magical, which is exactly what I wanted. #4: Her photos are not boring wedding photos. I also love the coloring of her photos. They are bright and vivid. We love them! #5: I felt that she was easy to talk to and understanding. For example, when I explained what I wanted the photos to feel like, she was open-minded and and had a "yes we can do that" attitude. #6: She was grateful and appreciative for my business!! I will definitively book her again, probably when i get pregnant! :)

My wedding was made absolutely complete by having the most talented and personable photographer! Cory Ryan captured every moment and through her photographs I am now able to relive my wonderful memories by her amazing photographs. I am so pleased with every single photo she took, her color and lighting are amazing.

When hiring a photographer a lot of times people don't take into account that on your special day you will be spending a lot of time with that person so its imperative that your photographer is someone who can make you feel comfortable. Cory is such a sweet easy going gal, yet an extremely professional wedding photographer, with those two attributes you have yourself the most awesome wedding photographer!

I could not be more pleased with my choice as choosing Cory Ryan as my photographer!

I just received our wedding photos back from Cory and while sharing them the #1 phrase repeated by all my friends and family was, "Oh my gosh, Cory did an amazing job!!"

Her attention to detail really allowed the photos to tell the complete story of our wedding day from beginning to end. Throughout the entirety of the evening, I hardly noticed Cory but the photos appeared as if she were everywhere in the shadows.

Her candid shots are indescribable. She took shots of my grandmother (and many others) that put me in tears. Every single image is full of raw emotion and love.

The best wedding planning decision I made was picking Cory Ryan as our photographer. She truly is a blessing to work with and I can't wait to share our cherished memories with our children-to-be.

Cory was great to work with. She is easy going and professional. And most importantly to me, she was fun! When I first met with her she was even helpful with ideas on what to do with my ceremony, as I was undecided and stressed about it all! I didn't want too many posed pictures and I wanted a mixture of traditional and eclectic. I received exactly what I wanted. Thanks to Cory for making our wedding day photos easy.

Cory was just wonderful to work with and I think her photos speak for themselves! She was very prompt and professional and made sure that she took all the pictures I wanted and many more I didn't know I wanted :) I think you will find that she will be a lighthearted and fun element to your big day, and you will get some amazing images.

I have gotten tons of compliments on her photos, especially how beautifully color-saturated they are and how creative she is with composition. I got my edited DVD of all my photos in the mail quicker than I expected (about a week) and I loved the results. I had an extremely small wedding budget (about $4k total - my dress was $100 to give you an idea), and she was totally worth the cost.

I’ll tell you this- Cory is a creative photographer who is quite amiable. I shopped through many websites of wedding photographers and they were all the same to me. After seeing her site, it was important to work the budget to snag her… we are very VERY glad we did.

When you have a wedding, you hear that you will hardly experience anything you plan because it goes by so fast. You also hear that you will have hardly any time to be with you newly betrothed because so much will go on and so many people will be there… both, in my experience, were not true. I do chalk this up to hiring and working with Cory… let me explain:

Not only did she capture all the moments we had (planned and spontaneous), but also moments the guests experienced! Even if I wasn’t sitting at their tables or in a certain dance mob, I felt the life and energy through the photos she provided! Her photos showed all sides to the event! She didn’t miss a thing… Cory took my husband and I aside to take some couple pictures before the reception and after the ceremony... This was great. We basically had a sweet time just being together and away from it all. She just snapped away taking some wicked pictures as we enjoyed each other’s company. With her we didn’t miss a thing or each other.

Please enjoy this wonderful artist for your wedding photography.

What a wonderful choice!! I'm so incredibly happy with Cory Ryan. Before the wedding, when brides are usually a little on edge, she made me feel comfortable, relaxed and, more importantly, beautiful! I felt like I was modeling in a photo shoot. During the wedding, I felt like I hardly saw her, but looking at the photos, she was everywhere! I have seen some photographers that were intrusive and distracting -- NOT Cory! I am more than pleased with the photos from my wedding. I look at them over and over again because they aren't the typical staged photos - they tell the story of the wedding. My husband and I feel like we are reliving the event when we look through the albums. I keep having people (some who I don't even know) tell me how fun and beautiful my wedding photos turned out. You can't go wrong with Cory Ryan!
