I think everyone should re-read the original email:
"...As an example, we are interested in unlimited high-res photographs on a DVD, a digital album, an engagement session, video coverage, with an edited video and possibly an enlargement photo.
...I really like your work, but In all honesty, we are looking for vendors who can work with me to provide services free or at an extremely high discount. I know you are in a business, and free services are difficult, but if there is anything you can do to accommodate me, I would really appreciate it. ..."
Nowhere did she say "big fancy wedding" and demanding? Really? Most demanding brides I've had to deal with have never once said "If there is anything you can do accomodate me.." They say things like "I WANT ___" or "YOU WILL ___" or "I want a photo taken at (location). I don't want it too dark, I want to look like a princess, but not too much one. Okay? I also want i want my bouquet off to the side, and you'll need to photoshop me so I don't look too fat. Can you also do something about the bricks? I don't really like the color. We also need to do it fast, because I want to spend time talking and drinking with the bridal party and my family."
You might also notice that the OP's signature says he's a photographer to the Indian Community in Chicago. It's probably not a coincidence that the email came from someone seeking coverage of an Indian ceremony and reception, emailed to a photographer who specializes in Indian weddings.
We really need to stop the knee jerk reaction when a potential bride asks for something extra or questions our prices. It's always ..."They have no respect for photography! They're cheap! I'm not going to waste my time! Bah!"
Yes, of course photography is a business; and yes, of course we want to make money. But hopefully the bottom line isn't the ONLY factor.
