Many couples can feel a bit overwhelmed when they first view their wedding photos—there are so many photos to choose from. How to decide which ones to include in your album?

We try to simplify the selection process by creating a smaller gallery of 700-900 photos that I call “Top.” This gallery contains the photos that are the best candidates to include in your wedding album.

For each selected print note the image number.  find the image numbers

From Online proofing in the lower left hand corner you will see a number like:
