I’M SO GLAD YOU’RE HERE! I’M MADELINE.

I picked up a camera because I had one belief that I wanted to express to my friends & family: “You are beautiful, and I’ll prove it.” Fast-forward 12 years, and I’m still singing the same song.

Between then and now, I married the love of my life, Nick, in a whirlwind of romance; became a mother to Isla Katherine, Esme Juliette, & Levi Robert; and we’re creating the life we love in small-town Wisconsin. I love baking cookies (I make the best, ask anyone!), flowers, doodling on everything, peppermint mocha frappes, and all things weddings!



WE’RE THE ROME FAMILY.

Nick and I met on the worship team at church. . .and the rest is history! Holding fast to one another through thick and thin, we grew closer through each season of life. We married young, bought our first home in Fort Atkinson, and brought three little angels Earthside. We started and operate our photography business together, and strive to bless those around us as best as we can with love, generosity, and photography! Yeva* grows stronger with each passing year.

We love Jesus, marriage, and counting all our blessings with our kiddo’s every day. He likes his coffee black, and she likes her sugar milk to be coffee-flavored. Nick is a left-brained, health-conscious nerd, and I’m a right-brained, dessert-loving freespirit. We balance each other out, and we agree that it’s a match made in Heaven!

But enough about us, let’s hear about you! Drop a message to say hi, and let’s grab coffee soon! We can’t wait to get to know you, too!

*And, what does Yeva mean? Glad you asked! On a foggy window, in the dating days, Nick traced, “Nick + Maddie 4eva”. Confused by his messy handwriting, I asked, “What does that say? ‘Yeva’?” And it stuck. Our definition of the word is, loosely, “Love Forever”. A long time later, we learned that “Yeva” is a Ukrainian name which translates to “Life”, and we couldn’t agree more.
