An American couple have enjoyed a successful marriage owing to their passion for Nikon camera equipment, according to a report in a Colorado newspaper.

?If I had been using Canon it might not have worked out. She married me for my lenses,? JR Schnelzer told The Tribune, a paper based in northern Colorado.

JR ? the president of Loveland Photographic Society ? met his wife Lisa while he was taking a photography class at Colorado Mountain College in the early 1990s.

Lisa, a student at the time, explained that she ?admired the range? of her future husband?s Nikon lenses.
