Honestly, I think I’d just give him a written thank-you letter with cash in it!
And I’d pull a “cakeyp’s mom” and shove it in his shoes if he refuses.
That way he gets money that he can spend however he likes and a thoughtful thank you note.

But honestly the BEST gift you can give him is to keep being amazing friends!!!
That’s worth it’s weight in gold.

@Radiocure:  If he is building up his business, I remember when I was a struggilng photog I really wanted some amazing lenses but did not have the money for them. Amazon actually has the best deals on most photographic equipment so I really appreciated Amazon gift cards at the time.

@Radiocure:  is there any expense for the wedding that you are requiring them to pay out of pocket?

@Radiocure:  I’m designing/making my friend’s invites, necklace, cake topper, favors and I don’t expect anything in return.  Chances are if a friend is doing something for you, it’s because they want to.  I think a heartfelt thank you will be enough of a token of appreciation.

I think a new lens is a great idea.

Also a bottle of wine with a heartfelt note never goes badly.
