See my previous sentences which address those issues. One of the most important things in any business is good customer relations. If the client feels the photographer is being unfair or ripping them off they will make sure they tell everybody they know not to hire them.

And yet, that's not what happens with the higher end of the market. The higher end wants an experience; they don't want to get their hands dirty with 'raw' files.

It should be obvious I am not talking about the higher-end market. I'm talking about us slobs who have to go into debt to pay for overpriced weddings.

You said I'd get replaced because I didn't offer them. It wasn't at all clear that you were not directly addressing the high end market.

Since I was stating that the high cost of weddings in general and photographers, in particular, was a problem I thought it was clear I was not referring to the high-end market which is made up of people with money to burn. All the common middle-class people I know are looking for every way possible to keep wedding costs down. This is especially true as more and more people are paying for their own weddings. Both of my kids paid a substantial part of the cost for their own weddings with help from the parents of both the bride and groom.
