There’s nothing like professing your love on the North shore of Kauai, Hawaii. And no way to capture it without your own personal paparazzi! It was a great pleasure to finally give back to my loyal and devoted long time second shooter Ryan Mylnarczyk. For years he has tooted my horn as his photography mentor, but I can’t emphasize enough what a gift it is to see someone’s work and style blossom under my wing and for his work to become truly his own, having his signature style. Plus there’s nothing a more I can ask for having his championing as one of the things that has kept me going through the years. Ryan has made me cry with his enthusiasm for my work, but more than that he has given me and our clients exceptional photos again and again! FINALLY I have been given the opportunity to turn the camera on him and return the favor! Paparazzi style!
When I heard Ryan talk about his new skype friend, his face would grow soft and he would suddenly turn to mush! “Hmmmm, this must be some special lady!” I thought to myself. Everything he described was magical and simultaneously seemed like a mirror of himself. And upon meeting her ( he flew her out to Kauai and she stayed!!), his glowing words could not even begin to capture Constance’s true radiance and loving heart. These two are a pair for life, I believe it. I have been blessed to live with them both on Kauai, sharing meals, enjoying community gardening and lively conversations as well as heartfelt hugs, tears and laughter. I thank them both, Ryan and Constance, from the bottom of my heart for their love and support and I look forward to witnessing and participating in their life together <3
