Tonya Cruser, Owner

After studying art and fashion in San Francisco, and taking classes in fashion photography, I earned my masters to become a high school art teacher, teaching classes at Columbus North High School such as Jewelry & Glass and Photography. I opened my business, Urban Rhino Photography, in 2012 and have enjoyed watching it grow and develop. I get to put my experience in fashion photography to use, and I love styling the models and setups. I love spending my limited free time with my husband, Brett, and daughters, Olivia and Vivian. Thank you so much for following the Urban Rhino Brand!

Amanda Doty, Director of Photography

My love for photography started at a young age when my dad passed his old camera down to me. Soon I wasn't going anywhere without it. I fell in love with not only the idea of capturing moments, but doing so in a unique and artistic fashion. What began as a hobby continued to grow throughout high school where I met Tonya, who quickly became a mentor that inspired me to further my passion. As I pursued my dream of becoming a Veterinary Technician In college, I also had the joy of working with Tonya as she began Urban Rhino Photography. It is truly awesome how much this business has grown and I am thankful to get to grow with it. Please contact me if you would like to schedule a session or wedding!

Kristina Davis, Newborn & Child Photographer

I am a stay at home mommy of two adorable little girls. With the support of my wonderful husband, I have been able to pursue my interest in photography. I have experience with infants, children, teen and family photography. I enjoy taking many different types of pictures and getting people to genuinely laugh, relax and smile. I want your photographs to be as original, real and unique as life itself.

Smita Satham, Wedding Photographer

Hello! I found my love for Photography when I was in 9th grade and was given a film camera to use. From that day on, photographs have had a special place in my heart. Little did I know then that this skill was actually inherited from her grandfather. Apart from Photography, I also love to dance (a lot) and love antiques, vintage stuff...anything artsy is what gets a smile on my face. I have been living here in Columbus, Indiana for the past 2.5 years now and absolutely love my city and its people.
