No because the capo changes the key and I need to play it alongside a guitarist so need to play it in his key

Ah, you mean those chord shapes, gotcha. Just take those chords on the piano like I mentioned before and move them up two whole steps and you'll have it. For future reference, each fret on the standard guitar is a half step, so just do the math whenever you have to deal with a capo and move it up x amount of steps.

G = B
Em = G#min
Bm = D#min
A = C#
