I think that you should respond to him with a photo of some super model (thats been airbrushed tip to toe) along with the amount you're going to be spending on your wedding. You did say close to $500,000 right? ;-)
Then once you've peaked his attention lay into him. Tell him that his e-mail was competely inappropriate and even if he offered to shoot your wedding for free you wouldn't be using his services. Furthermore, you are going to be putting the word out to your other engaged friends to steer well clear of him and his company. His choice of words and lack of respect is utterly distasteful.

i think you've already done the most effective thing you can.. put the word out there that the guy's a dirtball. based on his email i can only assume he's the kind of person who, even if you tell him how rude he seemed, wouldn't care one bit. a bad review will accomplish more than an email back to him! just think, the next time someone googles his company, your post will come up!!
good luck finding a fantastic photog for your wedding! someone WORTHY of bringing to MX!

Sometimes when you respond to people as though you are angry, they will just write you off as a crazy person. Even though you have every right to be offended. It might be more effective to say something along the lines of "based on your email, I don't feel like your personality would mesh well with us, our family or friends. Thank you for your time and consideration..." That might get him thinking about his personality flaws at least.

I do understand that this photographer only wants pretty weddings and pictures,but we, as photographers have to make everyone look great. My clients are not models,but I try to make them look like the ones from fashion magazines and would never complain or turn anyone down!!

I hope the fabulous supermodels who are considering hiring him stumble across this exchange - I don't think anyone would want to hire someone apparently so pompous.
Sorry about your experience
