@ orangutan: food is necessary, but not a wedding fotographer.
If some pay 3k or 11k (hello dear Mr. Suprapon!), so there will be some who take that.

If you not willing to pay so much, so what?

I never took more than €1000, but this was years ago.

Another observation: as strange it may sound: if you take less, youre work is less appriciated.

This.  Psychologically speaking, there's a natural assumption that quality costs, and although some folks may appreciate finding the exception to that rule, most people will assume that the higher-priced shop will do the best work.  Therefore, it probably makes sense to advertise at a slightly more expensive price than average for your area, but not so much more expensive that people don't bother to contact you.  Then give a discount.  That way, they go into it thinking not that they got an inexpensive photographer, but rather that they got a great deal on a great one.
