Ryal Sormaz


A little bit about me...


Hey! I'm Ryal Sormaz and I am a photographer based in Geelong, Victoria. In the early stages of my career I was captivated by landscapes, moody forests and flowing waterfalls. After shooting a close friends’ wedding as a favour, I found a new love - capturing human interaction and emotion. Split second moments. Images with the capacity to evoke everything that was felt from one day.


I have always loved creating, (be it art, music etc.) and can honestly say that I would not want to be doing anything else. I love simple and authentic moments. I also really love pizza.

Or perhaps you are looking to elope...?


‘Elsewhere’ is my separate elopement business with the incredible celebrant, Kahani Motiani: exclusive packages featuring unique accommodation in regional Victoria.


Whether the country, the coast, or the forest is your flavour, this is an ultra intimate, carefully curated experience with a difference. Check out our website and our Instagram for all the details and for all Elsewhere enquiries.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can we meet you? Of course! I would love to meet you and learn more about how you envision your wedding day! After a deposit is made we can arrange a catch up closer to your wedding date. I usually like to get together at your ceremony/reception location. Alternatively, I am always happy to chat over the phone before you make your deposit to assure that I am the right fit for your day!

How do we secure a wedding date? To secure your date, I ask for a 10% deposit to be made.


But what about the COVID? If COVID is to become an issue all I ask is that you guys shoot me some dates that you are thinking about rescheduling to. Your deposit will carry over to your new date.

What about travel fees? I am based in Geelong, Victoria and a small travel fee will occur if your wedding is 75 minutes outside Geelong.

Can we add additional hours to our package? For sure! Additional coverage can be added to either package at a rate of $700 per extra hour.

Do you travel interstate/overseas for weddings? I most definitely do. Infact, my first wedding I ever had the pleasure of shooting was in Lombok, Indonesia. I love photographing in unique locations! Travel costs vary depending on when and where.

We are an awkward couple and hate the camera! Don't worry, so do I! That is why you will always find me on the other side of the camera. I always do my best to blend into the background on a wedding day and capture you and your guests in the most natural way. I will offer some guidance when needed, although I much prefer to let the day unfold the way it should, naturally.


Do you offer video as well? Nope, but here is a few that I recommend you checkout:

- @thesewildeyesvideo

- @jacobhjestonweddings

- @mrjohnkurt

- @torresweddingfilms

Do you have a drone? I sure do, and in the past I have used it to take a big group photo of guests. Maybe this is something you might be into? We can discuss the potential of the drone coming out when we get together!

Do we receive edited images? All the images I deliver are edited and colour graded. You will receive a mixture of colour and black and white with no watermarks.

We have more questions! If you have more questions, or just simply want to chat further please send through an email to
