behind the lens

Melanie Siena-Thomas

Hi, I'm Melanie. I love Starbucks. The beach is my happy place and I enjoying getting lost in a good book whenever possible (preferably at the beach with a coffee.)


Being a photographer is my dream job and I launched Siena Photography with a desire to “capture life’s moments” – the silliest faces, the sad faces and all the faces in between.

I believe that one of the most valuable investments you can make is to hire a photographer to capture these moments and am honored that you’ve considered me.

I look forward to meeting you and the special people in your lives!

Melanie did our wedding photography and we LOVE the photos! She was great at the wedding and was really able to capture some of the best moments even though sometimes doing pictures can be awkward. Thanks Melanie!
