    Not an experienced Android user. I'm accustomed to the iPhone so I still haven't figured out how full functions or back up options for HTC desire.
    Photos were accidently deleted. Important photos
    No SD card and no google back up that I can find...

    Is there any way whatever so ever the photos can be recovered ?
    Even paying a tech or something

    Please advise.

    Note that the storage media in your HTC Desire is a small microchip soldered to the motherboard inside your phone. It's not like a computer hard drive that typically can be removed to work on. There are data recovery services like DriveSavers but they aren't cheap.

    Maybe you have some of your photos uploaded elsewhere like Facebook? Or did you forward them to family and friends?

    Set up a backup solution now. Just some suggestions that include automatic backups:
    'Google Photos' is a good photo manager that also integrates well into your Google account.

    If you're a heavy Windows user 'OneDrive' is tightly integrated into other Microsoft services:

    'Dropbox' is an independent, third-party option that has a reliable, well established history:
