I've signed myself up to a wedding photography class and it seems pretty good so far. It's a short 6 week course and we meet once a week so it's going to go by pretty quick.

I have a studio session next week, we'll be indoors, lighting will be similar to Daylight, and so we're shooting manual ISO 100, 1/125 s, and I wanted to know if anyone has any suggestions capturing the best shots? There are 15 students in the class so instructor is not always able to attend to everyone at once, and I wanted to get an awesome shot for my final portfolio. Basically I'm looking for any tips and tricks that you all use while shooting, to create romantic and creative images.

Second, and this is slightly a side question, but how do you normally shoot weddings? Manual settings, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, Flash Priority, other? I'm looking for what you use majority of the time outdoors and indoors. Thanks.
