Have you ever thought of hiring an associate photographer for your wedding? Probably not because you may not even know what that is! Before we get into all the reasons why choosing an associate photographer could be the right choice for you, we want to explain exactly what an associate photographer at Rocha & Co Photography is. When you hear the word “associate” you might think of an assistant, or someone who is less experienced. This is actually just the opposite! Our associates have been personally and individually trained by Chelsey to work under the Rocha & Co name. To both shoot and conduct oneself in a way that aligns with everything Chelsey believes in. Let me introduce you to our associate photographers and I'll tell you a little more about what it's like to work with one of these amazing ladies!

Rocha & Co Photography Associate Photographers

How hiring an associate photographer works

and Why couples love hiring them:

You'll still have the chance to meet your photographer before the wedding day at your engagement session! 

If Chelsey is already booked on your wedding date but you LOVE our editing style, this would be the perfect opportunity to hire an associate photographer.

Chelsey will still be your main point of contact for the most part during your planning process. Chelsey handles client questionnaires and timelines but always encourages couples to meet with the associate who will be photographing their wedding either at the engagement session or at least on the phone prior to the wedding day.

Each couple that works with us gets the same experience. From session prep, vendor suggestions, timeline curation, tons of other information in our bridal guide, we got you! We are grateful that of all the choices out there, you have chosen us and we want you to have the best of everything we have to offer! That is absolutely no different when you hire one of our associates.

Our associates are personally trained by Chelsey and must second shoot a number of weddings with Rocha & Co Photography before lead shooting. This ensures our proven practices will remain the same no matter the photographer.

This is Morgan! She started working with Chelsey and Rocha & Co Photography in 2023, which was ironically also the same year that she got married as a R&Co bride. That's right, Morgan has quite literally been in your shoes! That alone gives her major points as she knows both what it's like behind and in front of the camera! Morgan has always been known as the friend with the camera in her hand, constantly documenting moments, both for herself and others, throughout the years. If you are booking an associate for your wedding, Morgan will be the face you see on your wedding day!

Morgans favorite part of the wedding day to photograph is: The party and all the dancing photos!

This is Katie! She has been photographing weddings alongside Chelsey since 2021. Katie has the ability to read minds (specifically Chelsey's), befriend anyone she meets, and always keeps us on track with our timeline on the wedding day. What first started as a business relationship, quickly became the best friendship, which makes working together all the more fun! She is a true gem and you will love sharing your wedding day with her.

"Booking Chelsey for our wedding was the best decision we made! She is extremely professional and so talented! She kept our day running smoothly and right on time. She was amazing at making sure we got all of the pictures we wanted and was so good at communicating with me before our wedding and creating our timeline. We didn’t get to meet before wedding day, but you would have never known, she is so personable & pays so much attention to little details. She was such a huge part of our day and we are so thankful we booked her. Our pictures are absolutely perfect, better than I ever could have imagined! We received sneak peeks so fast & our gallery was delivered in one short month. We’re obsessed with our entire gallery, truly everything we wanted & more! She’s truly the best & so so kind! Cannot recommend her enough!!"

The grays

"We can’t recommend Chelsey enough! I booked almost 2 years in advance because I knew her style was going to be a perfect fit for our special day, and needless to say, it was more than perfect! Chelsey and her assistant made our wedding day stress free and run smoothly from start to finish by being very attentive and organized. From our engagement photos to the wedding photos we couldn’t have been more happier with how they both turned out! She truly brought our photo vision to life! Anyone needing a photographer, she’s your girl! Go book now, you won’t regret it!"

the spegars

"Chelsey was a vendor that I had found early on in my planning process. I knew instantly that her photography style was going to be the perfect fit for capturing our wedding and details - colorful, romantic, and bright. From our engagement session to the wedding itself, Chelsey was lovely to work with, and was even happy to make sure we got a few shots in with our rambunctious goldendoodle during both shoots. Our photos are something we are going to cherish forever. Chelsey sent sneak peeks three days after the wedding, and we had our full gallery in just about a month. We had such a great time looking through it all and can’t believe that we have such gorgeous photos from our favorite day. Look no further for dreamy, colorful wedding photos."

The Hopwoods

"We can’t recommend Chelsey and her crew enough. Everyone was so sweet and captured our day perfectly. We haven’t even received all of our pictures yet but our sneak peek was beyond what I was hoping for. We were unable to meet with her before our wedding day but you would have never been able to tell, she made everyone feel so comfortable and she is one of the nicest people I’ve ever met! Would absolutely recommend to anyone needing a photographer!! 1000/10"

the Rosencrances

"If you’re not only looking for an amazing photographer, but also a wonderful person and friend for your wedding day, book Rocha & Co Photography NOW. Aside from my new husband, our family/friends, and all the love we had on our wedding day, the thing I am most thankful for through the entire wedding process was Chelsey. From the moment we started discussing and planning, she was so kind and helpful, going out of her way to offer us suggestions and tips to help make our day perfect. Our engagement shoot and pictures were amazing! She was so encouraging through the entire session and she got our photos back very quickly! On our wedding day, she was the one keeping us on track and keeping me sane! Our photos look amazing beyond expectation and words can’t describe how thrilled my husband and I are to have had Chelsey as our photographer and friend on our most perfect day!"


"Chelsey was absolutely amazing to work with! I cannot say enough wonderful things about her. She is organized, easy to communicate with, and very flexible in terms of schedule and location; she makes sure she has an idea of what you want and focuses on the things you say are important to you. She helped us organize our day and helped us stay PERFECTLY on schedule, which I imagine was very difficult with our busy day! Chelsey has an amazing understanding of lighting and location, and she captured some photos that we thought were just stunning! Aside from being super talented, she is also a joy to work with! Nice, easy-going, very organized, and professional. We could not be happier with our wedding photos."

"We 1000% recommend Chelsey and her crew for ANY photography needs. She captured our engagement photos and wedding photos and they’re absolutely STUNNING!! Chelsey showed up wedding day as not only a photographer, an extra bridesmaid to button my dress, make us laugh, and had a great time! She captured so many amazing memories for us to cherish forever . Trust me, you need her for your wedding/ engagement photos!!!"

the clarks

"Chelsey and her team are a DREAM. They go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and relaxed through the whole process of your engagement/wedding sessions and produce the most perfect photo memories of your special day. My husband and I are obsessed with our wedding gallery and cannot thank Rocha and Co enough for capturing our day so perfectly."

the kellars

"I would highly recommend Chelsey and her assistant photographers to anyone! From engagement picture planning to the day of our wedding, Chelsey was incredibly attentive to detail, efficient in planning, and extremely organized! These qualities help create the perfect photographer for your big day. I will be swooning over our pictures for years and years to come. They are all truly a work of art! Katie and Nicole also took very good care of us on our wedding day! I can't speak highly enough of Rocha & Co Photography. We are so appreciative of them and their hard work to capture our special day!"

the teroksys

"Rocha & Co Photography was absolutely perfect. Her thoughtfulness and attention to detail will always stick with me! Chelsey and her team helped with so much more than taking photographs like making a timeline, answering all my nervous bride questions, to even bustling my dress. We received our full gallery and I honestly cannot stop looking at them! I could not have asked for more perfect wedding pictures. They are the perfect way to look back on our big day and relive every moment. I love the authenticity of everyone’s emotions in the candid photos, the perfect keepsake from the day! I would 100% recommend Rocha & Co Photography to any bride looking for a photographer for their big day."
