I want you to absolutely love your wedding photos. What's more important to me is that you love your experience. Take a moment and read the reviews. I've been labeled as the Best Wedding Decision by my couples. I sincerely go out of my way to make every effort to over invest, over deliver, and provide a unique custom experience that is specific to you. Going beyond the scope of photography to raise the standard is an investment that you deserve as a couple.
Most of all, we believe you deserve the very best we have to offer. We're with you the whole day to make sure your day is captured beautifully
Brian did an amazing job with our engagement photos AND wedding. He makes you feel comfortable and gets great shots! For our wedding there were SO many awesome pictures, especially ones that I forgot we even took - and it rained ALL DAY LONG. That took away a lot of photo opportunities at locations I wanted that were outdoors, but he knew exactly what to do/get/where to go to make up for it. He is worth every penny.

If you ask anyone who has a lot experience with weddings, they will tell you how important it is to find a good photographer. The photos are the best memories for your life because the actual memory will become blurry, but the photos will always remind you of the the happy moments. I looked at all of the options online before choosing Brian. I can definitely say I made the best choice. Brian is very easy to work with, and he will give you specific instructions for how to pose and move, which magically turn out looking like natural pictures. Everyone is telling me I had the best photographer during the wedding and even more after they saw the results. He will discuss every detail about the wedding flow in advance. The only problem you will have trying to limit how many you print out because they all turned out perfectly. Brian, thank you so much for your hard work. You are a genius!

Brian has been more than we could've ever asked for in our wedding photographer. He truly loves his job and it shines through him & his work. Working with him has been such a wonderful experience. He is kind, creative, funny and really knows his stuff!! We had so much fun with him at our shoots because he makes you feel so comfortable infront of the camera. He nailed our engagement shoot & I cannot wait to see what he produces from our wedding! I would give him 10 stars if I could!

I can’t say enough good things about Brian! If you need a wedding photographer he is your guy! My wedding party and especially my sassiness were far from easy to deal with and Brian handled us all so well! If I could nominate him for the most patient and kind hearted photographer I would in a heart beat! He answered all my paranoid questions and always did his best to calm me down LOL. He was such a blast to have around! He’s super fun and always had my wedding party participating! He did an amazing job of making sure everything I wanted captured got done. He asked me multiple times if there was anything else I wanted or missed. His attention to detail and determination to make everything perfect for me made him one of my favorite people on my wedding day! We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect wedding photographer! Oh and have you seen his pictures?!? :)

Brian was truly a pleasure to work with in every aspect. From the first phone conversation, to the engagement session, wedding day, and follow up after, he was on point and accommodating to our every request. Brian is very serious about his job and it can sometimes be confused with him being distant, but he is a professional and knows exactly what he is doing every step of the way. He is funny, has zest, an unreal eye for aesthetics, and knows when to step back and let the magic happen organically. My husband and I knew he would be a great match for us from the first conversation we had with him and we were 100% right. He was with us the entire day, from the moment I started getting ready until after dancing had begun at the reception. Our wedding photos are so beautiful I could literally cry looking about every one of them. We will cherish these memories for the rest of our lives and can’t thank him and his team enough for their undivided presence and attention on that special day. I can’t recommend him enough and look forward to working with him in the future. He is absolutely worth the money!! Trust me :)

When you get engaged everyone tells you as a couple to sit down and list out the things you want for your day. When looking at that list the top few things should be the things you spare no expense on. For my now husband and I that #1 thing for us was pictures. We both come from families where pictures mean a lot and have been a big part of our lives. Right at that moment I knew from following him for a while that Brian was the photographer for us. His pictures don’t just capture the couple but help tell their story. When we arrived at our engagement session I was about as nervous as they come and I think my now husband was as well but Brian made it so easy and effortless, and my gracious when we got those pictures back they were absolutely beautiful! Then when it came to our wedding day Brian again was constantly making me feel comfortable(...) and asking me if I needed anything... If you are looking for a photographer who not only cares about your pictures but the 2 of you as a couple and your day as a whole look no further then Brian, because he is not only a great photographer but a great person!!

If you are looking for a talented photographer who will work hard for you that is fairly priced, (that’s comfortable shooting pets too) Brian is your guy... He’s extremely personable, and helped me understand how important it is to do an engagement shoot to “practice” for your wedding day... He had a lot of tactics to help us as a couple get more comfortable and feel more relaxed in front of the camera. For example, he asked my fiancé to whisper his Chipotle order in my ear, I laughed so hard at the sheer ridiculousness of it and the photo turned out so authentically silly... We were so impressed at how hard he was working for us, as if he didn’t have tons of other couples to worry about... The photos turned out beautiful and we are getting so many compliments on them... Brian is very hard working and is very creative and talented. You can tell he really loves his job. We are grateful to have found him and will cherish his work through our wedding photos for years and years to come.

We had been following Brian's work for quite some time now, and knew we wanted to book him. We booked him a little over a year in advance, as he books up very quickly! Brian was amazing to work with! He responded quickly to our emails, texts, and calls, and thoroughly answered any questions we had! Brian was very patient and walked us through everything, gave us great suggestions (e.g. location for photos, timeline of wedding day, first look), was upfront when answering our questions, and was SO personable and easy to work with and talk to (which was huge for us!...because we have been in other weddings where photographers were not so pleasant)! Brian was extremely helpful and knowledgable in instructing the bridal party on what to do and how to pose/stand for the pictures. We received our photo galleries quicker than expected from our engagement session and wedding day! And, we were blown away, to say the least! The pictures were everything we could've asked for and more! Brian did not disappoint! Remember that you get what you pay for... Brian is the best in the business and worth the investment!

We heard about Coss photography by a referral from my cousin Who was getting married shortly before we were. We first met Brian during our engagement photo shoot in Chicago. Despite the cold and rainy weather, Brian was incredibly patient and adaptable and made sure we got all the shots we wanted. Brian also kept in close communication with us in the weeks leading up to our wedding to get a strong sense of any special photos we wanted as well as the specifics of our wedding and reception venues so that he could prepare appropriately. He was very easy to reach out to and he took time to chat and understand what we were looking for. We were very stressed about wedding planning, he explained to us about the timeline and what we can do with our schedule. When the day finally came, Brian and his team went above and beyond to capture every moment from make-up/ hair and first looks to golden hour shots and family photos. Brian and his team were on top of everything which gave us the peace of mind to enjoy ourselves without worrying about whether we were getting the photos we wanted.

YES!! We travel anywhere and everywhere. In IL, ALL the travel is included in the package price. Outside of IL the travel arrangements are a case by case basis. But trust me, our travel fee's are more than reasonable and typically are cheaper then hiring a photographer on site.
Well...every wedding is different. Short answer...we're with you the entire day. We believe you deserve it. We do not charge hourly for the simple fact that we don't want you stressing about how long we're there. Enjoy your day, we'll capture it for you!!
