Kevin Tran (KT)
The moment I picked up a camera, I knew that this would be the tool for my creative outlet. I approach every shutter click like a blink of an eye, recording and freezing a moment in time to be looked back upon. While I specialize in many aspects of photography like product photography, portraits, and lifestyle, I find that weddings are the most fulfilling. Being able to create lasting memories for one of the happiest moments of your life brings me so much joy and knowing that I played a part in that makes me whole.

Lead Photographer & public relations
Photography grew into a love that blossomed with every interaction, each one its own unique love story. The best part, documenting their moments in the quietly intimate and large-scale landscape. Working alongside my sister and brother-in-law proved to be the only environment worthy of the amount of hours and care. It’s a nurturing yet driving force, compelling one another to do our best and celebrate each other’s wins. Sometimes people say what we’ve achieved is a dream. It’s better than a dream. It’s my reality and a refreshing slice of what’s yet to come!

email, consults, & marketing
I’ve worn many hats, but my place has evolved into managing happiness. Running a business for 99% of our relationship together has given me the voice I never knew I had, and awakened a passion for creativity I only hope to share with my team and whatever I might find myself in. The road has been long, but in reality we’re only getting started.
Specialty coffee roaster and dog mama. Always searching for a better system to do things. Playstation gamer and outdoorswoman. Love to work and play hard.
photo editor, second photographer
A carrier in photography was just a thought and dream to me during high school. Now it is my future. I am now able to pursue my love of art in a productive and exciting way. Being able to express myself and make others happy by capturing their memories and candid moments.
Artistic, quiet and thoughtful. Sean is young, but a sponge to the world of photojournalistic wedding photography and the art of the photo editor.
I’ve carried a camera with me as far back as I can remember. As a child I would beg my parents to buy me that bright yellow and black plastic Kodak disposable camera for every school field trip. I have fond memories of winding the plastic wheel and looking through a tiny viewfinder, the way a biologist looks through a microscope, and exploring the world around me. We never know we’re in the good old days until it’s too late. Photography opens up a window into the “good old days” in a way that our memories can’t quite simulate. My goal as a photographer is to capture the raw and candid emotions that people feel on one of the most important days of their lives. By including your closest loved ones, your “good old days” are just a click away.
Before you know it, the flowers, food, music, and lights will all be over and the only things that remain will be the small windows into your lives that I humbly get to be a part of and capture.
KEVIN LE VU
LEAD PHOTOGRAPHER & FOUNDER
If you would have told me 10 years ago that Id’ be a successful photojournalistic photographer in Southern California, documenting 500+ weddings, traveling to all hidden gems nationwide, doing what I love everyday of the week with a talented team- I would’ve called you a dreamer. Graduating from Cal State Fullerton with a Bachelor’s in Science. I clearly did not see myself as an artist at first. Then I purchased my first camera. Dabbled into landscape, portrait and street photography. Then I met my wife, Meg. We started KLV Photography in 2009. I fell in love with weddings through the connections and experiences I have with each couple. It’s my creative haven where I can express myself. And the rest is history.

We believe that weddings should be captured in the moment and not acted out. The landscape is just as important in the frame as our couples. Our collections are cinematic and play out like a movie when you revisit them. The best moments are captured in between conscious thought and when you let go. Let our cameras fade into the background and immerse yourself fully in the moment in front of you.
