So I'm kinda interested in the gear that all you guys have for shooting a weeding! I have been booking a TON more weddings, and I like it!

I'll start off by posting my gear list for weddings!

Canon 7D
Canon 70-200 f/2.8
Canon 24-70 f/2.8
Canon 85mm f/1.8
Canon 50mm f/1.4
Canon 430 EX ii

I really dont use the 70-200 much, nor do I use the primes, but they are still nice to have. I'm wanting to upgrade the 70-200 to the MK II version, as well as get a new camera body and use the 7D as backup! Maybe a mark III or a mark IV?

No, what Im saying is

For the wedding photographers, what gear do they prefer shooting, not my gear list alone, I was just wanting a idea of what other wedding photographer use.

You definitely need a backup body and a backup flash. I shoot weddings solo, so I even bring backups of my most used lenses. You just never know.
