let me add my $.02... at the beginning - I'd charge anyone extra just for driving 500miles to a gig - doesn't matter what kind of pkg they chose. Just think about it - 250 miles each way it's an additional 8 hrs without rest or sleep. That means your 8hr gig turns into 16 hrs. And you have extra expenses like gas and car wear. You said you have another gig following day - are you going to have enough time to recharge all batteries and prepare the equipment? And finally, lets say you finish the first gig at 10pm - you'll be back home at 3am. And next gig starts at noon? and most likely you have another 1-2hrs of driving there. That leaves you with merely 7-8hrs of rest and repacking. And that will also reduce your creativity for the 2nd shoot. The 2nd couple booked you for your style and you might have big problems trying to deliver what you promised because you're too tired.

as far as the privacy issue - i have no problem with giving up on advertising. Happy customer is more important then 2-5 secs of footage.... as long as I feel being paid fair.
