Shelby Marquardt

Owner, Lead Photographer at Shelby Tsika Photography

You are so loved.

1 john 4:18-19 

 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us.

A few things about me:


Mr. & Mrs.

I am an introverted, extrovert who loves people, but needs to recharge

My idea of a good vacation is doing intense research on food in that city and diving in to allll the restaurants

I am a newly married lady to the kindest man, Cody Marquardt (pictured left)!!

Shelby Tsika Photography is still my business name, even though my legal last name is Marquardt now. As a little girl, I always thought my last name would get easier to pronounce one day. NOPE :)

You pronounce Tsika, SEE-KAH. Marquardt is : MAR-KWOART.

I am pretty obsessed with audiobooks, especially thrillers. Cody says it’s not really reading (it totally is)

I pretty much Love all things sweet.

Neutral basics + Ruffles + jeans + flats + tiny jewelry = my go-to outfit

I have an anxiety disorder, and I am not ashamed.

I own a second business, The Kimberly Place. Mental health is my favorite topic, y'all !

Canada is my favorite place in the world.

I am an INFJ on the Meyers Briggs. You should definitely let me know if you are too, because we are less than 1% of the population

I grew up half in Western North Carolina & half in South Texas. The Blue Ridge Mountains have my heart.

The most important thing you should know about me is that Jesus is all that I am and I cannot put into words how incredible His love is for you and me.  I believe man was created for His glory. This business is my little space on this earth that I use to honor Him.

I am so happy you are here, and I can’t wait to meet you!
