So you'd like to be a pro wedding photographer (shooting Canon).

A Listmania! list by Kelly Hrncir "KLVNH" (Washington, DC)
The list author says: "For how I work (typically shooting in low-light situations - i.e. churches and hotels or reception sites), this list includes some gear that I feel I simply cannot do without."
Canon EOS 5D Mark II Full Frame DSLR Camera (Body Only) (OLD MODEL)
1.  Canon EOS 5D Mark II Full Frame DSLR Camera (Body Only) (OLD MODEL) by Canon
The list author says:
  "THE "wedding photographer's camera." Full frame, excellent in low light. Get at least one of these, and for Christ's sake, SOMETHING as a backup."
$2,694.00   Used & New from: $830.00
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (414 customer reviews)

Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Ultra Wide Angle Zoom Lens
2.  Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Ultra Wide Angle Zoom Lens by Canon
The list author says:
  "My fast, ultra-wide. Used for unique getting-ready photos, wide shots of ceremony showcasing the venue, some formals, and crazy reception party shots.
People will get drunk. It makes this lens even cooler."
$1,699.00   Used & New from: $690.00
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (187 customer reviews)

Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Standard & Medium Telephoto Lens for Canon SLR Cameras
3.  Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Standard & Medium Telephoto Lens for Canon SLR Cameras by Canon
The list author says:
  "I own both the 50 1.4 and the 1.2, and while I do mostly use the 1.2 (because I already own it), for the price difference, the 1.4 is more than sufficient."
$399.00   Used & New from: $275.95
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,217 customer reviews)

Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon SLR Cameras
4.  Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon SLR Cameras by Canon
The list author says:
  "I own the first generation of this lens and firmly believe that something this long is required for most ceremonies, and if you want to make sure you can use it in almost any situation, go ahead and get the 2.8 IS... Otherwise you'll spend the money on a lesser lens and realize you need both the extra stops in aperture and the ability to drop your shutter speed with the IS."
$2,299.00   Used & New from: $1,160.00
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (419 customer reviews)

Canon Speedlite 580EX II Flash for Canon EOS Digital SLR Cameras
5.  Canon Speedlite 580EX II Flash for Canon EOS Digital SLR Cameras by Canon
The list author says:
  "If you're shooting weddings, you need an external flash for the getting ready and reception shots. Compared to the 480EX II (which I have owned and subsequently sold), this is far superior. I own 4 of them; two for my 2 shooting bodies, and two to put on stands and cross light for dark receptions where I can't bounce. Which leads me to..."
$679.99   Used & New from: $318.00
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (459 customer reviews)

PocketWizard PWP-TR 801-125 PLUS II Transceiver - Black
6.  PocketWizard PWP-TR 801-125 PLUS II Transceiver - Black by PocketWizard
The list author says:
  "For off-camera flash. Don't waste your time with Canon's infrared crap... because you'll be wasting a lot of time, waiting for it to fire."
Used & New from: $139.99

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 [OLD VERSION]
7.  Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 [OLD VERSION] by Adobe
The list author says:
  "You need this. Personally, I think Adobe is screwing themselves out of $550 for making a product so awesome that it makes CS 537 (or whatever version they're up to now) unnecessary."
$96.99   Used & New from: $84.99
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (238 customer reviews)

Drobo Beyond Raid 4-Bay USB 2.0/FireWire 800 SATA 6GB/S Storage Array with Drobo PC Backup
8.  Drobo Beyond Raid 4-Bay USB 2.0/FireWire 800 SATA 6GB/S Storage Array with Drobo PC Backup by Drobo
The list author says:
  "Memory is cheap. Lost photos and lawsuits are not."
