Wedding photography came into practice since the invention of photography in 1826. People did not hire a separate photographer to their wedding. The couple and their families went to the studio and had their formal wedding photo taken. Due to the difficulty of carrying large objects such as lights, curtains and background settings, most wedding photographs were taken inside a studio. But today as a result of the technology, every equipment has become portable. Sri Lankan wedding photography is at a very advanced stage that by the end of the ceremony the visitors will receive a wedding photo as a token of gratitude for their presence. This is mainly due to the introduction of digital cameras to the Sri Lankan photography. This advancement of digital convenience enables quick detection of any lighting mistakes and deleting any unwanted shots taken.
Even if the photos were taken against a dull monotonous background, Sri Lankan wedding photographers use modern techniques by replacing the background with another vibrant setting. To bring in lot colour and life, Sri Lankan photographers place the bride, the groom or both of them in completely different places such as attractive gardens, artistic places, beaches or other breathtaking landscapes. Wedding photographers in Sri Lanka use the technique of remote flashes and are even capable of using creative lighting.

These photos can be printed in matt, glossy surface or even Dura-guard which will give an extended life span. Thus creating wedding albums has become one of the most essential things at Sri Lankan Weddings.
