We investigate the transient dynamics of photon statistics through two-time correlation functions for optical field coupled to a non-Markovian environment, described by the Fano-type Hamiltonian. We exactly solve the time-evolution of an initially nonclassical state which exhibits photon antibunching. We find that the transient correlations at different times t yield a smooth transition from antibunching to bunching photon statistics in the weak system-environment coupling regime. In the strong-coupling regime, the two-time correlations exhibit oscillations that persists both in the transient process and in the steady-state limit. The oscillatory behavior of photon statistics is a manifestation of strong non-Markovian memory dynamics where the system remains in nonequilibrium from its environment. We also find that the antibunching-to-bunching transition in the weak-coupling regime and the photon statistical oscillations in the strong-coupling regime are strongly influenced by the environment temperature.
