My phone is stuck on the boot screen (it's rooted and i have clockwork mod) and normally when this happens, i would just factory reset and it would work just fine but all my photos would be wiped. This time I have really important photos that I didn't back up so I was wondering how I could back it up. Unfortunately I didn't have debugging mode enabled so it doesn't show up when i plug the phone into my laptop

What can I do to backup my photos?

a factory reset/data wipe(NOT the one that wipes the ENTIRE /data partition, I use twrp I can't remember what they call it in cwm) might allow your device to boot by erasing userdata/settings/installed apps and such, BUT it leaves /data/media intact which is a link to /sdcard where all your photos are stored.
a factory img restore WILL WIPE ALL /data, so don't do THAT yet.

if you have any rom zips on device you can TRY booting recovery and install it and then try to see if it boots.
recently I got stuck at boot and had to reflash my commotio zip in order to boot device.
