Yes sorry, I somehow threw and extra I in there after I copied and pasted it :P
In my experience, I don't mind losing a customer if I know they're not a good fit from the start. If they have a budget and ask me "I'm looking to spend this much, what can we do for that", I'm game. But telling me from the start that you don't want photos taken and you don't want to spend a lot spells trouble to me. I've worked with those people before and they are the first people to complain :P
Well there's a difference between not bringing on someone who was never your type of client, and sending someone away thinking you're an arrogant ass. She WILL tell her friends how you treated her, and she just might exaggerate a little to make you seem worse.
Instead of being a ****, I recommend Sears. I proceed to explain the difference between what I do and what they do, why they're fine for basic needs and why I should be chosen for more advanced desires.
