Ones I use in the UK are:
They all sell a wide range of items, so you'll want to check out reviews and forums. But the quality of kit on the market these days is generally excellent compared to when I started - as a beginner, get something that isn't complicated to operate and is in a form factor that suits you. Basically you need a battery of some sort (get at least 2), and something to contain and atomise the juice (get several to make sampling juices easier)
Juices are very much personal preference. Get a wide range of styles and from different manufacturers. Don't prejudge your tastes, many a new vaper has gone into it knowing that they only want tobacco juices, and a few weeks later been predominantly alternating caramel with strawberry. Tobacco juices are likely to be disappointing initially - vapor flat out doesn't taste much like smoke, the best you get out of tobacco flavours is something that tastes like unburnt tobacco.
A few suggestions. These are decent batteries, the ones I use when I don't want to use my larger kit (their a bit long in the tooth now, they were one of the first really decent smaller variable voltage batteries. Some of the more modern stuff may well be better, but these do the job).
You'd need a charger such as this one:
These are some really nice "clearomisers" - you fill them with juice and screw them on the battery and you are good to go - I used to hate early clearomisers since they weren't that consistent, but these converted me from more complicated items. You don't really want to change flavours in a clearomiser, so get several:
You might want to consider a "dripping atomiser" - an atomiser that you manually drip a few drops of juice in the top to use - handy for flavour sampling (purists will say they give the best flavour too):
Then all you need is a selection of juice.
