i need advice!

ben and i want to invest in a nice camera. 
one that will last a looong time, and that will take pretty, pretty pictures. 
however, i know nothing about camera. nothing. 
but i am willing to learn! and i will. 
i might even take a few classes. 

here's the thing, we don't know what camera to get!
this is where all you photographers come in. 
we need all the advice we can get. 

(keep in mind i'm not wanting to start a business or anything. i'm not going to become a photographer.
i just want to document our lives with a nice camera that takes nice pictures)
the digital camera i got my junior year of high school just isn't cutting it anymore. 

SO....
canon or nikon?
or another brand i don't even know about?
hybrid or dslr?
is one more user friendly?
which one is easier to get used to? easier to learn how to use?
do i have to be super camera savvy to even purchase one of these?

i don't know what to do. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated:)

also, 
just for fun. 
i love this guy. 
and wish we could relive this day so bad. 
perfect:)

I just read your comment and I would say the Canon Rebel SLR cameras are great for starting out and take great photos. I started out with that first and it's super easy to figure out how to use and makes everything look so pretty! There are so many different types of Rebels, any would be great; guess it just depends on how much you want to spend! If you have any more questions feel free to ask!

For a beginner camera with great features and easy to use interface, I always recommend the Nikon D40. It's what I started out with, and had it for 4 years before upgrading. I also just helped one of my friends pick out a DSLR, she's a beginner and she went with the Nikon D3000 and absolutely loves it.

I just got a canon rebel xsi! I was in the same boat- I don't want to be a photographer I just want to take good pictures and it's amazing! Super easy to use and such a big difference from a regular point and shoot!
