Until and unless you actually institute a lawsuit and, in the course of the lawsuit, use the legal process or mechanism of "discovery" (such as document production requests or subpoenas), yes, they can deny this to you. An private party is not under a general obligation or duty to share information, photos, videos, documents, etc. except and only to the extent required by a court order or otherwise in the course of a legal proceeding.
