    The EXIF data has been stripped....so I can't tell for sure.

    My guess would be a telephoto lens...probably a high quality, fast telephoto lens. It sort of reminds me shots from the EF 85mm F1.2.

    I will guess a fast prime lens.

    From her equipment list, I will guess it is from the EF 50mm F/1.2L paired with the 5D

    I'm thinking maybe the CANON 17-35MM L EF f2.8. Will an L lens fit on my rebel xs?

    You mean the 16-35mm F2.8L

    It's a great lens, but I don't know that you need it. You already have 10-22mm covered...and while it would be nice to have some range between 22mm and 50mm, it's not essential.

    So what do you think would be good from that list if not that 16-35mm? Or do you think I have what I need as it is?

    Nothing on that list jumps out at me, not for weddings anyway.

    I guess if you really want something, the 16-35mm F2.8L would be the best choice...although I'd rather recommend the EF-S 17-55mm F2.8 IS but they don't have it.

    What about the 35-350? Sounds like that one might save me a lot of work from having to switch lenses out, no?

    General Rule of thumb: The bigger the zoom range, the lower the image quality of the lens.

    Now, this one is an L lens, but I've never heard anyone describe it as an outstanding lens, like you hear about most L lenses. And with a max aperture of F5.6, it's not ideal.

    My suggestion would be to use your 70-200mm and then a wider lens for more 'normal' range stuff.
