I want you to know me just as much as I want to know you. I'm goofy, don't take myself serious at all, love Rom Com's...yes I admit it LOL LOL, but I absolutely LOVE having the honor to be in a position to record your legacy. It's taken me 10 years, thousands of hours, & having shot over 230 Weddings to build Coss Creative to what it is today for you. This Luxury Experience you'll receive was earned through a lot of hard work, perfecting my craft, & tweaking every little detail imaginable. I provide all-inclusive photography services all over the midwest & nationwide offering seamless collaboration that caters to your schedule, location, and event space. I'm your biggest fan, your biggest cheerleader, your honest / blunt friend, & most importantly your photographer who sincerely loves you. I got you!!
I ( Brian Coss ) have been in the wedding photography industry for a decade. In those years, I've had the pleasure to earn notable recognition and accolades from publications including The Knot Hall of Fame, Modern Luxury Weddings Chicago, CHI thee WED, Borrowed & Blue, and The New York Times, & the list goes on. From the shores of Laguna Beach, the great lakes of Michigan, to the mountains of Tennessee, I've traveled to seek out and shoot your unique memories. My approach to your photos is way different than the industry. I spend a bulk of my time talking with you, sincerely wanting to get to know you. This time spent allows us both to get comfortable, then the magic happens when you're in front of my lens!
Raw emotion and a passion for bringing memories to life is how I got started. I call it a perfect storm of events that really inspired me to take my passion & go pro! With the premature birth of my first son ( Benny ) & the passing of my mother ( Cinda ) due to cancer occurring less than a week apart, I realized I needed to create a life worth living & leave a legacy. Being present in the moment and having a passion for capturing life’s most special moments was always important to my Mom. After one of the most emotional weeks of my life, I decided to chase my dreams, quit my corporate job, & become a full-time Stay-at-Home Dad / Photographer. Ten years later, 230 Weddings shot so far, a luxury experience has emerged into what is now Coss Creative. My drive & determination to create a luxury experience for my couples is almost supernatural. This is for you Mom, I hope you're looking down and your proud of me.
Owner & Photographer
I'm beyond dedicated to being present for my photography couples ( Love you guys ) – and my own family. At my very core I'm a devoted husband and father of two amazing children, Benny and Beau, that I work everyday to leave a legacy they all can be proud of and look back on.
I've always been a gear nerd. Creating a Luxury Wedding Experience I had to go in a different direction. I wanted gear / equipment that truly set me apart from the industry. I've invested deep into Leica & Sony providing imagery that is like none other. These tools have become an extension of who I am that allows me not only to get the great photos but also the photos that truly define your day in a unique & creative way. Anyone can take a good photo but you're investing in me to pay attention and capture that photo that you can't live without.
You’ve gotten to know me a little bit, now I want to get to know you! I'm eager to connect on a personal level and help make your wedding or special occasion memorable through my authentic photography services.
15 Mintues during Golden Hour can save your wedding day. Investing in a great photographer that priortizes time for couples is worth it. Photography
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 […]
