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.

I wouldn't go near a wedding as a photographer or as a guest, but I do shoot professionally, including events.

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

1) 24-70 f/2.8 for wide shots

2) 70-200 f/2.8 for telephoto shots

3) 35mm f/1.4 for specialized shots.

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) Godox AD200's (I have four)

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:

No clue.  I wouldn't do this.

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 f/2.8

2) 70-200 f/2.8
