Carlos Rello | SENIOR Lead Photographer + Production MANAGER
When I say photo is my life, I truly mean it. I am a creative who is very lost in art but happens to still make sense in the real world. I enjoy being around people and having an open, curious mind. When you see my work, I hope you feel the moment, the expression, love and over-all passion. I have always said I LIVE to create because I feel it is truly one of my greatest abilities. It is my passion. I'm a Jesus follower and know that my talents are gifts from above - so I feel the need to share my gifts with others, as we should also share love.
Authentic, good quality, home-cooked meals are the way to my heart! I come from a very close-knit family. I'm a native Floridian. My grandparents and extended family are originally from the state of Hidalgo in the northern part of Mexico. I speak both Spanish and English fluently.
I graduated from the International Academy of Design and Technology with a degree in Photography. I have been photographing weddings for Limelight Photography since 2012, and I am also the Production Manager.
It has always been a desire of mine to provide people with outstanding, dramatic and emotionally captivating work along with great care and service. The feeling of being taken care of, being in the right hands and providing work that truly has a great value to every client is my ultimate motivation that pushes me every day in this artistically expressive field.
I like to think myself as creative and tech savvy, and always up for an artistic problem-solving challenge. I am a major night owl and will often get on a roll with editing and stay at it until the sun comes up. I try to be as humble as possible and have a gentle spirit, but I am outgoing and not afraid to speak my mind. I am a graphic designer, photographer and a musician which makes me have an extremely unique characteristic - that I will often randomly explode with unexpected outbursts of random thoughts that start the creative juices flowing.
"Our photographer Carlos was the best, and we can't say enough about his ability to put us at ease to capture genuine happiness. We just received our photos and are in love. We 1000% recommend Limelight to anyone and everyone." Meredith and Dean Carballal
"I had done my research once we decided that we would go the destination wedding route and was very impressed with the teams work! (more like obsessed) Limelight Photography became my one "must have" for the day! The entire process was seamless, from the initial intake calls with Michael and Carlos, to the follow ups with Dafne throughout the year, the entire team was responsive and professional. I am not someone who is comfortable in the "limelight' and do not like having all eyes on me, but the minute Carlos and Alexa walked through the door on wedding day, all of my jitters were gone! They have a way of making you so comfortable for the day and provide nothing but calm vibes and laughter!! Priceless and Perfect is how I would describe our pictures! Unbelievable, we love Every.Single.One. I could go on forever about them! All future brides doing your research, if you want one less thing to worry about leading up to your day, a stress free vendor and amazing QUALITY, do yourselves a favor and sign with team Limelight!!" Kylee + Bronson Smith
"You are a rock star Carlos! I cannot thank you enough for capturing the best day of my life so well! Thank you for keeping me calm in some of the stressful moments and for allowing Jason and I have to fun with you while taking photos!! I love the Limelight family and feel so very blessed I was able to have them be part of the best day of my life!! Do yourself a favor and contact Limelight regarding photography for your wedding, I can promise you it will be well worth it!! " Ashley + Jason Vallicot
"We cannot say enough great things about Limelight. Carlos was our main photographer and we also had him do our engagement photos almost a year before the wedding. From the very start Limelight was amazing. They walk you through how everything works, what type of timeline you'll have, etc. Our engagement shoot went effortlessly, and we loved the engagement photos so much, so we knew our wedding day photos would be equally as amazing. I think I changed my mind about 3 times about details and the shot list and Carlos was so understanding and willing to work with my crazy self. On the actual wedding day Carlos had an assistant Alexa who was also amazing. They both did a great job and offered suggestions throughout the day. Throughout the whole wedding day we stuck to our schedule, got every single shot that we wanted and I hardly even noticed they were there. We highly recommend Limelight. You will not be disappointed!!" Jessica + Alex Ward
