We’re Cory and Gia, your go-to Austin photographers with Cory Ryan Photography. Photography is a beautiful way to freeze time and document life. Wouldn’t it be great if you didn’t have to find a new photographer for every milestone? Instead of wedding photos by one photographer and family photos by another – all shot in different styles – you had a reliable lifetime photographer to count on for it all. We’re here for you!

Our story actually begins with YOU – the people we photograph. We both started as wedding photographers over 15 years ago, but then something incredible happened. Over the years, couples returned for anniversary, maternity, and family portraits, and we loved staying in touch with our friends so much that we kept it up.

Life doesn’t stop after the wedding. In fact, it just gets better with time! So, we’re here to photograph it all. We promise to deliver the same timeless photographs we want for our own families — images brimming with personality and authenticity.

We’re here for the beautiful times, the challenging times, and the triumphant times. This is a safe place for you to come as you are and wherever you are in your adventure. Whether it’s your wedding day or your baby’s first birthday, we know there are no second chances to capture a once-in-a-lifetime moment. We bring all of our enthusiasm and dedication to every event or session we shoot.

As experienced photojournalists based in Austin, Texas, we’ve worked with every type of lighting and every Texas weather surprise. We’ve worked with everyone from newlyweds to newborns – and even great-grandmas, too. We excel in real-life photography so you can have the stunning images you deserve. Let us know what you have in mind – we look forward to meeting you! What are you waiting for? Let’s connect!

Cory + Gia

About Cory: As a mother of two awesome kiddos, I know how fast time flies after the wedding. It feels like just yesterday I was saying “I do” to the love of my life. Now here we are, buying elementary school backpacks! I love every part of my job because of the wonderful families I get to meet throughout the wedding process and beyond. There’s never a dull moment, and I’m here for it!

About Gia: I'm a hopeful romantic and I love a good story. These are the things that drew me to wedding photography. My obsession with details and my big heart for people help to bring an inquisitive eye and honest approach to my work.

Cory went above and beyond for my family and I am forever grateful for the wonderful memories and moments that she was able to capture.

Cory is so amazing! She photographed my wedding this past May and we love the images so much. She was easy to communicate with prior to the wedding and made everything so seamless the day of. Even helping us find great photo spots in our resort. She went above and beyond for my family and I am forever grateful for the wonderful memories and moments that she was able to capture. I will never use another photographer!

Amazing photographer from a photojournalist

WOW! Cory did an amazing job with our engagement and elope-ish wedding pictures! We wanted someone that was creative, fun and could capture the moments. Cory was all of that and more. I don't mind getting my picture taken but my wife hates it and Cory made us both feel at ease and we actually had a good time at our sessions! Our pictures are stunning and something we will treasure forever.

Cory is a dream to work with!

Wow, where to start?! Cory and Gia were simply amazing -- two of our most favorite wedding vendors and we loved all of ours! I knew I wanted Cory to be a part of our big day right away because I had been admiring her work online but getting the opportunity to actually work with her was an absolute treat. She is warm, friendly, professional, prompt, and FUN! She and Gia hustled all day working to get the best shots for us. They were so cool, calm, and flexible, even holding babies and herding our five flower girls. And boy, they did not disappoint. The photos they captured are so dreamy, beyond our expectations. Our friends and family are equally thrilled with them -- I have never received so many compliments before in my life! We can't stop oohing and ahhing over them -- such perfect photos to capture the perfect day. We highly recommend Cory for your special day!
