MUST HAVE lenses for wedding photography?

I shot my first wedding in the early 1970s, I used one camera and the standard 55mm f1.8 standard lens because that was all I had. This was by no means unusual and we just found a way of getting the shots we needed.

Unfortunately, we can't be sure of choosing the right kit until we have experience. When my wife started professional wedding photography, she used the family kit. Although the Kodak DCS760 was the best digital DSLR in its day, she hated it because it was heavy and she didn't like the "pro" lenses that went with it.

After 6 months or so, she was in a position to choose her own kit. Initially, she tried to do without the "pro" zooms but soon learned why most other professionals were using them. Some 15 years later, she still keeps the D2Xs bodies for studio work with the 17-55mm and 70-200mm for all her work.
