Due to so many people moving over to the Nikon d750 for their wedding photography gigs, we are seeing more and more people reaching out to ask about the best lens for wedding photography for Nikon d750 cameras. Now the real answer to this question is that it depends on your style of wedding photography and even then, chances are you will be needing to consider two or three lenses anyway.
That said, we have decided to feature two different lenses that will mount directly to your d750 and offer some excellent wedding photographs. Each lens has its own strengths and specializes in its own photography style that we will be covering throughout the article. If you are new to wedding photography and still building up your photography business then picking up either of these lenses can help drastically improve your performance, if you are more established and already have a number of paying clients then picking both lenses up can cover the majority of situations that may pop up during a wedding photography gig.
The Nikon 28-70mm f/2.8D ED-IF AF-S
Being a 28-70mm zoom lens it allows you to use your Nikon d750 to capture a whole range of photographs that are commonly required for wedding photography. The lower end of the zoom is ideal for capturing the subject of your photograph as well as the background or for capturing photographs of groups of people. Moving up to the middle zoom range of the lens allows you to capture some beautiful portraits with an excellent image quality of the guests of the wedding and finally, the higher zoom levels are ideal for picking up highly details photographs like photographs of the rings or of the seating placements.
The manual zoom and manual focus rings on the lens are also very easy to use helping to tweak your image to perfection before choosing to capture the photograph. Both rings have a different texture to the main body of the lens making it easy to quickly locate them while still focusing your eyes on your viewfinder while tweaking your image. Additionally, they are both very smooth to turn yet have a little resistance on them to help prevent you from accidentally over rotating.
Another great feature of the lens that makes it ideal for wedding photography is its low light performance. As many churches have poor lighting and many wedding reception venues also have poor light the Nikon 28-70mm allows you to easily keep capturing photographs with excellent image quality without lighting conditions becoming a hindrance. All of this makes it the obvious choice and we feel the lens will be a great choice for our readers.

The Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S VR
The Nikon 70-200mm has an excellent build quality that makes the lens very easy to use while also keeping it as robust as possible. Just like the Nikon 28-70mm covered above, both the manual zoom and manual focus rings on the lens are excellent allowing you to easily perfect your image before choosing to capture it. The functionality of the lens is solid to allowing you to use it in a number of situations common to a wedding although it offers no real wide angle capability so the Nikon 70-200mm will make a better secondary lens in our opinion rather than a primary when it comes to wedding photography. Additionally, the low light performance of the lens is excellent offering some great image quality no matter the lighting conditions of the venue.
If you prefer the style of standing on the edges of the wedding and essentially sniping your photographs or if you need to add a lens to your camera accessories to fill this niche then the Nikon 70-200mm is the lens for you. It will mount directly to your Nikon d750 camera body quickly allowing you to hot swap between lenses on the fly as you require throughout the day too.
