I do agree with what you are saying about wedding photography. People just think because they have a DSLR they can suddenly shoot weddings. I really cringe when I see some of the websites where people are advertising themselves as pros yet are shooting weddings with entry level cameras and kit lenses. The shots are awful and it makes me cringe more that people are actually willing to pay for them.
I do think wedding photographers and portrait photographers should have to undergo training and receive a license to practice. Or at least anyone wanting to photograph weddings should take out compulsory insurance.
On another note, I was in the zoo a couple of weeks ago and saw a guy with a Canon EOS 1D MK IV and all the latest gear. I watched him compose some shots of the apes and could see his LCD window, all the shots were blurry and he clearly didn't have a clue what he was doing. To make it worse he was shooting in auto as well!
