The Ruse - I was to meet Patrick and Rachel at Rachel's dad's house on the lake. I wanted to take photos to build my portfolio - nature, wildlife, and people. AND, since I would already be at Rachel's dad's house, my family, along with a few friends, were invited over to watch the UT game.
The Problem - Patrick forgot to run this plan by Mother Nature! There was a 100% chance of rain yesterday! It was raining buckets from early in the morning, but by the time I got there the rain had stopped. We headed out on the lake to get "my pictures," ably assisted by Rachel's brother, Russell, as our Pontoon Chauffeur Extraordinaire.
The last photo as simply, boyfriend and girlfriend.
And then Patrick said, "I have an idea for a photo." At this point, Rachel was still completely clueless, but she caught on quickly!
