Lead Photographer Brian L. Coss has been in the wedding photography and videography industry for nearly a decade. In those years, he has earned notable recognition and accolades from publications including The Knot, Modern Luxury Weddings Chicago, CHI thee WED, Borrowed & Blue, and The New York Times. From the shores of Lake Michigan to the mountains of Tennessee, Brian travels to seek out and shoot your unique memories. He looks to bring out the best moments in photos and video by making clients comfortable. In short, Brian is present, personable, and fun!
Raw emotion and a passion for bringing memories to life are how we got started. A perfect storm of events inspired Brian Coss to pursue his creative photography vision. With the premature birth of his first son and the passing of his mother due to cancer occurring less than a week apart, Brian realized he needed to create a life worth living and leave a legacy. Being present in the moment and having a passion for capturing life’s most special moments were always important to Mom. After one of the most emotional weeks of his life, Brian chased his dream and quit his corporate job to become a full-time stay-at-home dad and photographer. Nearly ten years later, Coss Creative has shot countless weddings and other special event sessions – all the while striving to tell clients’ stories and make their memories last a lifetime. This is for you, Cinda!
Owner, Photographer & Videographer
Brian Coss is dedicated to being present for his photography clients – and his own family. At his core, Brian is a devoted husband and father of two children, Benny and Beau, who works everyday to leave a legacy his loved ones can be proud of.
Brian is a master photographer and videographer, using only high-quality equipment to capture and memorialize your events. He also has a love of all things tech and movies. Photographers can use any Canon or Nikon model, but Brian has perfected the use of his Sony a7R IV camera, with high-resolution imagery, speed bursts to capture photos quickly, and AI-based tracking to get those hard-to-catch moments. In addition, Brian embraces his love of great movies and utilizes Hollywood production-level cameras for video services, including Sony FX3 and RED Komodo digital cinema cameras, paired with some of the best audio recording equipment in the industry.
It takes a village. Along with our lead photographer, we offer a team of professional photographers and videographers that assist as second shooters, assistants, and much more.
You’ve gotten to know us, now let us get to know you. We’re eager to connect on a personal level and help make your wedding or special occasion memorable through our authentic photography and video services.
A Stunning Three Oaks Wedding Long before an engagement session, I’m connecting with my couples to find out their story. How did they meet? What was it that about their relationship that brought them to the point of forever? Phil eagerly shared the details with me…lol. You know, the usual guy meets girl at the […]
Coffee…meet bagel. I’m more of a coffee meet donut kinda guy LOL, but in all seriousness, this couple’s beginning is precisely that! Pat and Ying met through the wildly popular dating app Coffee Meet Bagel, though Pat nearly missed out on the opportunity to meet the love of his life! After some convincing on the […]
I think one of the most rewarding aspects of being a photographer, is getting to continue working with some of the same families. Holly is no stranger to us.
