      Hi James, are you looking for specific photos that your photographer has taken for you? If so, you’ll have to contact them directly via email or from any contact link on their website. If you can’t find that information please shoot our Support Heroes an email with any and all information that you have on the photographer and the gallery that you saw and they’ll be happy to search for you: http://help.smugmug.com/customer/portal/emails/new
