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) 24-70 F2.8

2) 34mm f1.4

3) 70-200 f2.8

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) Don't know probably multiple speed lights. Or portable elinchrom units

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) Same as above maybe 3 party to keep on budget

2) Same as above 3 party to keep on budget

3) 80-200 f2.8 D

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 f2.8

2) 70-200 f2.8

Thanks.
