    Hi Bro,

    Maybe you can check out the 'Wedding Portfolios ' section in CS. There are a group of experts there. And you can also have a look at their Portfolios, you be amazed!:

    Cheers!

    see a wedding album and clone. Unless you know the weather is on your side on that day, prepare secondary locations.

    You might need a circular polarizing filter. The glare from the sun might make your background looks overexposed.

    Else at least have a UV filter on then shoot at a settings with the background slightly underexposed then fire on camera flash at the targets.

    For optimal results, get a flash or reflector and do read up a bit on portraiture photography. Like what the others have mentioned, look at some of the masters' works and have an idea of what can be achieved.

    Seriously, since you're new to all this, keep it AS SIMPLE AS POSSIBLE.

    Shoot under the shade, use a reflector or fill flash, and never be ashamed of using the 'P' rofessional setting on everything. You won't have a second chance with weddings.

    How does a CPL possibly cut down on backlit situations?

    Exactly... a fill flash would be more ideal in this situation.

    circular polarizing filter are not use for such situation.
    and circular polarizing filter will not work when aiming at the light source.

    Agreed with Dream Merchant. Keep It Simple.

    don't shoot couple under hot sun, unless you want to end the shoot early, find an open shade, try not to include too much sky in the background, more green is better.

    simple pictures rather than no picture.
