is it possible to recover data from a locked phone?

Some weeks ago, I changed my phone's password while half asleep and haven't been able to remember it since. I've since gotten a new phone, but I really want to get the pictures and videos that were on there. Is this possible?

1) this phone was old and nothing was saved to the cloud.
2) there is no micro SD card in there, everything is on the phone itself.
3) Type was LG Optimus.
4) tried a bunch of different passwords already
5) i've considered going to one of those "data recovery" places, but it seems sort of sketchy. Is it safe/ worthwhile?
Thoughts? I've considered hypnosis, but it is very expensive.
