One can earn a living with plenty of things, although, frankly, wedding photography had better days.

The question is always: what do you want, as a photographer? A camera is a tool. If your job involves posting selfies on Facebook, probably a cellphone is a better tool. If your job involves a customer that will be impressed by gear, probably less so. If your job involves reproducing thousands of objects for catalogues (which I believe is the bread and butter of most real "pros"), a MF camera maybe a better tool because of tethered shooting. If your job involves aerial photography, a 100 megapixel camera will cut flight time. If your job involves doing unique portraits for art exhibitions, a sheet of Cibachrome at the back of a camera obscura may be an adequate choice.

All this is photography, a broader field than most people realise.
