If a wedding is a truly precious day to be documented with the best quality images affordable, with drama, grace, and beauty shining from every shot that makes the final cut, then a fair price can be worked out. Don't worry about the customers who want a $2 fish sandwich!
If cheap and quick is what a prospective client wants, don't get angry, don't preach, don't ask for pity because it costs a lot to run the business. Direct them to somebody else and move on.
Don't disagree with what you wrote, but photographers are not the first things on the list for prospective brides and grooms. Typically, the venue, accomodations and food are. Unfortunately, those are the largest ticket items and have already caused the clients to spend more than they want (i.e. What do you mean I can't afford a typical 25k wedding on a budget of 10k?). At this point, a lot of them are trying to squeeze blood from rocks.
