Heres the ask - you are limited to 3 lens to use at a wedding. The wedding will be during the day and outdoors. The reception/party will be indoors and some areas of the hall will be outdoors in the night.

For the Pro - what 3 lens will you pack and for what use:

1) Nikon 14-24/2.8 , Tamron 15-30/2.8 or similar

2) Nikon/Tamron 24-70/2.8 or similar

3) Nikon/Tamron 70-200/2.8 or similar

Pro Extra - You have no assistant and there’s a need for lighting - but you must use battery powered lighting only. What will you bring?

1) Same as previous + flash & other necessary lights.

— — If I have to use only one lens - 24-120/4 or similar

For the enthusiast on a budget - you have $1700USD to buy 3 used lens (on eBay or whatever) - what 3 lens will you buy for this wedding and what will they be used for:

1) 20/2.8 or similar

2) 24-120/4 or similar

3) 70-200/4 or similar

Disaster Strikes Option - you had to fly to the wedding - your carryon camera bag hold the camera and only 2 lens and your luggage with the lights and 3rd lens is delayed. What 2 lens do you feel will get you by and still take shots worth getting paid (any 2 lens regardless or price)

1) 24-70/2.8

2) 70-200/2.8

3) If I have to go with only one lens i will go with 24-120/4.
