thought some of you might get a laugh out of these. before yesterday i'd only ever seen these kinds of enquiries in photographer-related jokes. i had never actually received such an email, let alone two in two days. i've highlighted the parts i found particularly amusing, copied straight from the email (with id info taken out).

i assume by "professional and caring" they mean sucker. no "professional" could take that seriously.Hi there we are having a small wedding 10/10/2010 at 10am n would like someone who is professional and caring to take a DVD and photos for our wedding. We would like excellent audio and visual on the DVD as we have watched many a wedding video with very poor quality and this was a very sad experience as we felt so sorry for the couples to have to remember such poor quality of their special day for their good money Our plan wasnt to have a photographer/videographer at all because we are on a budget and it always cost so much for this. We are hoping someone out there loves their job so much that they are not only wanting to be there for the money but are wanting to be at our wedding to showcase their passion through our special day. It will be a simple job for such a professional as we will just want pics on a disc no albulm or anything flash. So maybe a great job for a professional freelance photographer who lives in (location) and is after a lovely day out doing what they love? Thanks
