I accidentally blocked and reported someone on WhatsApp. All photos and conversations are gone.

Is there any way to retrieve everything back, especially the photos? They mean a lot to me :(

I am using Oppo Reno Z.

First, stop using your Oppo Reno Z in case of data overwritten. Then try Android whatsapp recovery software to help you recover them back. Usually, it can help you recover them back easily. Just have a try and good luck to you.

Option 1: Restore pictures from an existing backup
WhatsApp lets us take a backup on Google Drive.
1. If you have a backup stored in the cloud, then uninstall WhatsApp on your phone first.
2. Reinstall WhatsApp on your device.
3. Launch it, and make sure you enter the same phone number while performing its setup. Also, the device should be linked to the same Google account where your backup is stored.
4. The application will automatically detect the existing backup and would let you restore your data on the app.

Option 2: Haven't backed up ? Use a Recovery Tool
If you haven't backed them up, then you can use a special Android data recovery tool, such as MobiKin Docor for Android, it will help detect your photo and extract them.
