The camera sounds like a lovely gift and personal since you said he is good at taking photos. I know many brides purchase watches or socks to gift to their groom. I think whatever you do will be wonderful and include a heartfelt message to give it that extra touch.

A camera wouold be great and if you match it with a cute card saying that you want to capture your future memories together it would be perfect!!!

 

You could get him a tie bar which is engraved as a cheaper alternative.

My husband and I usually give gifts that are more of an experience than object so finding a wedding gift was kind of hard for me.   I thought about cuff links too, but he works in a casual office and we aren’t fancy people so maybe these would come out once a decade. lol.  Anyway, I knew he would go out for a run the morning of the wedding since that’s how he likes to release stress (ha!) and generally kick off big days.  I ended up special ordering Nike running shoes in his size.  On their website, you can customize colors and even have some words cutom printed on the shoes.  I put our wedding date and wedding hashtag.  

His present to me was so non bridal but I loved it.  It was a sports cooler with my favorite team’s logo on top and filled with my favorite breakfast foods and desserts for my bmaid’s and me.  He was scared I would forget to eat in all the commotion and he didn’t want me to be hangry at the alter. lol  

We both also wrote nice cards to each other.

weddingnewbeee :  ha!  funny you mentioned that.  At our reception venue, there was an old piano on display at the entrance.  i asked my then fiance if he thought I should learn to play so i could play for him at the reception.  His response, “please don’t” LOL  at least he was polite.

I think that the camera is a great idea.  I was going to get FH a watch, but when I brought it up, he was totally against it.  FH does stage fighting for renaissance faires, so I’m going to get him a shield for his costume.  I would have rather gotten him something he can use regularly, but this is what he wanted, so that is what he’s getting.

I would definitely do the camera. It’s a personal gift because it’s something that you know he would love, is related to something he loves to do, and will be used on your honeymoon. I would include a personal note as a PP said, that will make it more special.
