Why some photographers would spend their priceless time working and creating memories for free?

When there will be too many people saying "I'll do it for free! contact me!", the next step will be "I will not do it only for free, I will pay you if you choose me for your wedding in that beautiful city!!" :D I'm joking, but I'm afraid that maybe it's not so much a joke...
I think they need a portfolio, it is the most easies way, but it is ruin all system ((((
If they need to build their portfolio in such a desperate way, then very probably they are not professionals and in my opinion for this reason they shouldn't be allowed to be listed on this kind of websites and answer to clients' requests. But obviously it's just my opinion :)
Of course for portfolio and to get experience and to be known, it's jusy a good start!
Obviously they are beginners (I hope), but I don't find normal that beginners willing to work and travel for free (or even losing money on it) can be listed in the same website/directory next to professionals that are doing it as a job, and I find even less normal that these beginners can answer to potential clients requests too. That's my point of view, at least.These people are somehow creating the idea that Mywed is a website where to find cheap photographers, and you can clearly see it from the average budget of many requests in the dedicated forum area.
If you don't have your portfolio or you want to discover new countries is possible
