Daily Inspiration: Meet Meg Le Vu

Today we’d like to introduce you to Meg Le Vu.

Hi Meg, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
We started as a couple in college. Kevin my husband, spear-headed this passion for photography into crafting moments for couples that didn’t seem to follow anyone else in the industry. While we didn’t know it then, he was creating a style that really drove us to be better. And we still hold those values today.

I’d say we’re here today because of his unrelenting vision for us in turn my total devotion to creating any solutions I could to make those visions come true. We have totally different approaches and mentalities behind our work styles. But looking back, it has been the two driving gears that have propelled us forward.

While it wasn’t always a perfect fit; it was our whole life. So we just did it; but we did together.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
The struggles come when you need to grow. It’s never the most pleasant experience. In the beginning, it was finding our true roles.

Kevin held all the keys to the gates. It was his vision and before our rebrand–his name on the business. I was always there; trying to find out who I was. What did I bring to the table? There’s no job title for; “anything else that needs to be done”. It was messy.

In a dynamic like ours, it’s always difficult to give someone power in your business. They will never do it like you will. And that fear can eat you alive. Instead, it’s best to find a path where they can do it better.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
In my quest to not only find out what my role was in our company, but I also found a passion for problem-solving. While we had a messy start with no structure. Because of my own journey through that, KLV Photography has systems, managers, employees, and emotionally we are all pretty balanced about how hard we work and play.

I wasn’t the best at finding our way to better operations, and it really could not happen if the song I sang about change wasn’t followed and then reasonably challenged and molded into what it is today. It’s easy to work for yourself. You’re the boss, manager and employee all in one. It’s hard to find yourself in a team of individuals with their own wants and needs. We are a tightknit team and through the years, we’ve learned to make those connections stronger and more efficient. Finding the best roles for everyone so they can succeed and feel successful too.

In the 13 years, we’ve been doing this, I’m really proud of the bridges I’ve made for myself and the people in this company.

How do you think about luck?
This is an interesting thought. While I don’t really use the word seriously, I do believe that our behavior can dictate how much “luck” or perfect timing can play in our life.

We’re wedding photographers. A date on the calendar is law.

It’s funny that of all the times for disaster to happen: losing a loved one, me breaking my back and neck, one of our shooters spraining an ankle, the photo booth breaking, etc. We have put in place some kind of system or method of damage control or person(s) to rise up and lead us to the finish line to never break a date. Never miss a wedding. Never miss a deadline. Always deliver the product.

Whether that’s luck or something deeper. I’m grateful.
