EF 28MM F/1.8 USM
From the Manufacturer
The Canon EF 28mm wide-angle lens lets you capture more in the frame by broadening the angle of view and increasing the depth of field. This not only expands the apparent distance between the foreground and background, but brings more area into focus--a must for photographers who want vivid nature shots or crisp group shots. The lens also offers an excellent price-to-performance ratio, with a high-precision aspherical lens that minimizes distortion and other aberrations to produce sharp and high-contrast images. Light enough to serve as your standard wide-angle lens, the EF 28mm carries Canon's one-year warranty.

I decided to not take out any loans to start my wedding photography business. Therefore I slowly worked my way to better lenses and equipment. At the time, this was the perfect lens for my crop censored 60D. I was able to get the wide shot I needed to have without having a full sensor DSLR.
This lens is super sharp and the f/1.8 is just flat out beautiful! The bokeh it can create can be breathtaking. You don't need the most expensive lens to create the best image possible. Don't be fooled. This lens is a workhorse!
Prime Lenses do take some getting used to. I would swap between this and the Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Standard at all of my weddings starting out. Now years down the line looking back at this lens the question remains... Do I recommend you getting this lens for wedding photography?
The truth is, I don't use the 28mm anymore. I now have a full sensor camera and several lenses that are 4-5 times the cost of this lens and they are much better designed for Wedding Photography than the 28mm ever could dream of being. I know how much greater other lenses are now, but honestly you have to start somewhere and I began right here with the 28mm and I'm not ashamed of it. I attached a few images to show you that this 28mm is the real deal. If you're looking for a solid Prime Lens, the 28mm is a great and viable lens to consider.
Lenses I would recommend to carry with you as a Wedding Photographer when you have the budget:
Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM Standard Zoom Lens
Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon SLR Cameras
Sigma 15mm f/2.8 EX DG Diagonal Fisheye Lens for Canon SLR Cameras
Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro Lens for Canon Digital SLR Cameras
I mainly picked up this lens because my nearest focal length was 50mm (another prime lens of mine).
I'm overall extremely happy with this buy. It is definitely a lot more expensive than the nifty-fifty, but you can pretty much take a picture of what you see with your eyes.
I was not able to do this with the 50mm prime. I either had to move my object or move back to cram everything in. 50mm took some beautiful portraits, but it's just not cool if you constantly have to move back to fit everyone in, for example, on a graduation setting.
With the f stop of 1.8 (same as 50mm prime), this lens does amazingly well in dark, indoor settings. And with the 28mm range, I can easily cram everything in.
Some have complained about its weight. I, however, personally like this bulky feeling on a lens. My 50mm is really light so it almost feels like I'm holding a piece of plastic. This 28mm will give you the feeling of "I'm holding an expensive lens" which I enjoy.
I know that Canon's L lens are the way to go for you experts. However, since I shoot for hobbies, I did not want to spend $1,000+ dollars on a lens. I'm glad that I bought this one instead!
