    Is this shoot more about portrait or event style?

    Since the above 2 lens are prime lens, you'll have to zoom with your feet.

    85mm has nicer bokeh, but difficult to cover whole body.

    I'd stick with the 24-70 if you have enough space to move around The 50/1.8 has pretty wierd bokeh esp if you have small dots of highlights (tends to turn pentagonal) I'd try the 35/2 together with the 85/1.8 if you dont like the 24-70. It really depends on your style.
