I love New Mexico Spring....snowstorms, thunderstorms, thundersnow, wind storms! The rivers are running with the fresh melt and are FULL! The grass is turning green and the dandelions are in full swing. I had the absolute JOY of photographing Rikki and Taylor in Pecos. We started out at the Ruins in the Park and then headed away from the park to create some romantic smokey background shots. This was my first time using smoke bombs per the request of Rikki. It was really wet and there was no fire danger. I would say I would not agree to do too many of these in New Mexico as we are usually under fire bans in the summer. So this was certainly special. We have some more smoke to use at the wedding in September if the ranch agrees. So stay tuned for more of this gorgeous couple in the fall!
