Any of you use only primes for weddings?

Primes are undoubtedly sharper and wide open look 'better'. But for versatility you cant beat the standard 24-70 and the 70-200 lenses (which are pretty darn sharp anyway).

I shoot a bit of everything as I have most lenses in my bag, but there is something mesmerising about getting a great shot at f2.0 vs the same thing at f4....

Been shooting for 24 years and I feel like I have barely scratched the surface of the photography world, and that there is a gold mine of stuff just waiting to be discovered if I dig hard enough for it.

Wise words....
