Rochelle Cheever

Award-winning, world-renowned, wedding photographer, author and luxury elopement planner

For the past 15 years, I've specialized in building the most romantic, adventurous elopements and Intimate weddings across the globe. I’ve scouted out the most breathtaking places in the world for my couples and helped them make memories to last a lifetime. I love helping couples celebrate their love!

Rochelle spent her childhood travelling to stunning locations such as the Amalfi Coast and the Swiss Alps. From a young age she felt a strong drive to capture the beauty around her, either by snapping her Polaroid camera or bringing moments to life through painted portraits.

Rochelle trained as a fine artist at the Florence Academy of Art, which led her towards wedding photography. She now has a team of photographers all trained by herself while she focuses on being the lead designer & planner. 

Rochelle has a strong connection to Italy. She was not only raised in Rome, but also married in Rome and all three of her children were born and raised in italy.
