Anyone male on here that is married should be able to relate to that scenario.
Well said on both points!
She's a professional photographer (I don't mean a stay-at-home mom that went out and bought a Canon Rebel DSLR "professional"). $3000 camera body, $1000s in lenses, $500 flash, umbrellas and lights/strobes/reflectors/tripods out the A$$. That crap adds up quick. I don't get it, but, I don't question it.
