Hello my name isXXXXX look forward to assisting and am very sorry to hear that you are having this problem.
You should still be able to Sync the iPhone with your computer without unlocking it, have you already done that to backup everything on it?

Yes we have tried that but it only wants to reset phone if I do that I will lose my photos


 

Expert:  Freddy M. replied 3 years ago.

You will lose them if you did not backup first, if you backup you can restore everything after resetting.
There is no other way, have you already backed up everything on the phone?

Is what saying disabled look can you help me to get past this code

Is the phone itself saying disabled, and I am trying to help you however right now it looks like your only option is going to be to bring it to an apple store. They may be able to get the pictures off of it for you. But the only way you are going to be able to remove the pass code is to restore it.

Unfortunately no there is not, you would have had to have already backed them up.
