Coronavirus has taken its toll on all of us and has seen hundreds of thousands of weddings either postponed, canceled, or pared back to minimal guest numbers. The stress and disappointment this must have caused to brides and grooms throughout the world is quite unfathomable—and it has also had a massive effect on those working in the wedding industry.

Wedding photographers have indeed been hit hard, with many of their livelihoods now at risk; many who normally shoot 25 or more weddings a year have now been facing the reality of maybe only a handful, or even less.

This picture says so much about the CV-19 pandemic era we live in, but also about Respect, Happiness and Love! Really fantastic how this photographer captured the moment.

But it's not all doom and gloom: During this time, some weddings have still been able to go ahead. Maybe they haven't been the grand-scale events that the couples once envisaged—or maybe they had been planning on eloping anyway!—but either way, people in love have been getting married, and photographers have been doing what they always do: Capturing the moments for them.

Because that's what we celebrate at “This is Reportage”: the real, un-staged and un-posed moments—documentary wedding photography at its very best.

Certainly not the way it was planned. Almost everyone having to watch via Zoom (thank goodness for technology!), heartbroken that family and extended family couldn’t be there in person, and hearing everyone’s well wishes and seeing their tears without the benefit of hugs and closeness normally associated with a traditional wedding. This will be a day you never forget, and with photos like this captured by such an amazing photographer, it will be cherished forever.

Our Reportage Awards are for those very best individual captures, and you'll also see some images from our Story Awards, which are for a series of 15-20 images of a single wedding.

So, though it's been—and still is—possibly the worst imaginable year for the wedding world, we present 25 incredible documentary captures that show that love and weddings won't be stopped by coronavirus.

I think it's ironic that the social distancing sign is also in this pic! (But it is a lovely, candid wedding photo).

Super happy about all of these!! Clearly people actually DO care about getting the virus. All I have seen are news reports and such of people refusing to wear masks and follow protocols

Now this is more like it, the new social order, no kissing, no holding hands and everyone is wearing masks. All to protect the old and vulnerable. Now this is a bunch of caring people for our safety. Bravo to them. Now get back home and stay there until a vaccine comes out and the Governments of the world says it's safe.
