For a start, I would like to share the gears which I am having. I've have a 17mm-50mm f2.8 & a 35mm f1.8 lens on a Nikon D7000 body. I have a strong interest in Fashion/Post Wedding Photography and have been browsing photo over the internet for inspiration.
I have came across some photographs which were shot @ a rather wide angle and yet with a shallow DOF. I have tried experiencing it but no way I could achieve the same effect.

My questions are:
1) Is the shallow DOF been created over the post processing stage?
2) Will I be able to achieve that kind of effect with my current gears and how to achieve?
3) Should my current gear couldn't achieve that kind of effect, will it help if I buy the below mentioned lens: a) Tokina 11-16 (zoom down to 16mm and fully open my aperture) b) 70-200mm f4(standing extremely far away, zoom down with a wide open aperture)
Hope to hear some feedback and advices from you all.
