What’s more precious than the awestruck candids of your big day? This Is Reportage loves to feature the best, unscripted shots of wedding photographers. It held a wedding photography competition this year. Many of the pictures from 2020 also show how the covid pandemic changed couples' ceremonies.
Everyone is too excited for their big day. The brides especially, want to keep in check every detail regarding their big day's dress up. But even before finalizing the bride's and groom's dress, a few other things are considered-the date, venue, arrangements, photography, and so on. While ticking off the to-do list, both the partners look for professional photographers too. It is because when they have put effort into everything, it needs to be beautifully clicked. The pictures remind us of the essence of the memorable day every time we see them.
If we look over this year, the scenario was not the same. The plans took a 360° change when the pandemic hit the globe. The unexpected situation brought stress for all the couples when they have had everything already planned. But at the same time, they didn't want to wait or postpone their wedding. So, they arranged small, intimate weddings. However, the weddings didn't go exactly as they planned due to the obvious reasons. But still, they went well and, indeed, memorable due to the same reason.
