So, just shoot all JPG, no WB, exposure, shadow, highlight, etc. adjustment at all, burn straight to disk and hand it them?
I agree with Canon that work is work and that the pay rate is pretty decent at that. But if I spend an entire day, travel, taxes, overhead, wear and tear, etc. for a job, I will also spend another several hours at home editing, processing those images. I am not retouching them - but shooting RAW, there's necessary time for what goes into that part of the photofinishing.
But bottom line is - what's it worth to spend that time away from my family? I love the work, but I will work according to how I value my time, talent and ability.

$500 isn't horrible if you can spend 100% of your time taking photos at the wedding and just turn over a memory card when you're finished shooting.
If the b&g are that strapped for cash, it is way for them to still eventually get the photos when they have enough cash to pay for someone to do post work/color balancing on them.
I'd say 4 hours of shooting photos, you giving them their images and walking off to enjoy the rest of your day.
