Take A Picture, It Will Last Longer

There appears to be an age old tradition of the bride and groom exchanging gifts on their wedding day. I'm not exactly sure how I feel about this tradition yet. It feels like there is a ton of pressure behind it - I can just hear it now, "what did you get Blake?" and feeling like nothing would be good enough. There I go again, worrying about what what others think so much. To avoid this pressure and not conform to the traditional norms of wedding expectations, Blake and I have decided to get eachother one big gift - together.

We both have an interest in developing our photography skills. We have thought about taking a class or two. I feel like becoming a decent photographer at least requires decent to nice equipment. Therefore, we are going to buy ourselves a nice camera to take on all of our adventures of becoming a newly married couple!

What's even better about this is that my work generously gave me a large gift card to Best Buy from a contest my region won. This will really help us pay for our gift to ourselves- yay! I'm not sure if the kind of camera we want is found at Best Buy - but we will find out! Does anyone have any suggestions? We are thinking in the realm of an DSLR. Any thoughts or reccomendations are welcomed!

If you end up having enough money after the camera...I would definitely invest in a nice lens to go with it!
