If you didn't configure Windows Phone backup option or use VZW Backup Assistant then all is lost.

If you did go with Windows Phone native backup and you use an Outlook account you should find your photos and videos on OneDrive.  I'm not sure how much VZW Backup Assistant backs up but you would need to start a restore from that software and see what's preserved.

With any OS installs/updates a backup is always best to first.
