    Is there a way to retrieve photos if someone didn't back up?

    there might some professionals who can do that for you, but i think the ones that you see on the web are just scams....so be careful

    this is why you should be using some kind of cloud service to back things up. google photos is what i use. i never have to worry about my photos. they are automatically backed to the cloud. i can take a picture, wait a minute or so for the photo to be backed up, hop on my computer, and view my photo without having to hook the phone up to the computer.

    also this is why you should always backup everything before performing a factory reset.

    unless you are willing to pay someone to get those photos back, i think you are sol.......sorry

    If the phone is a newer model running Android 6 or later, then most probably no. A factory reset will generate a new encryption key for files and erase the old one. Even if you could recover the files, they'd be encrypted and completely unreadable. Sorry.

    Usually, pro android data recovery softwares like below can help us recover deleted photos back without backup.
    1. Coolmuster Lab.Fone for Android
    2. Easeus Android Data Recovery
    3. Dr. Fone for Android
    4. MobiKin Doctor for Android
    5. iSkysoft Android Data Recovery

    But before that, you need to make sure the deleted photos not being overwritten by new data. If they are, there is no way to recover them back.
