direct or indirect object

 Ils m'ont bien sûr envoyé des photos, Is the past participle envoyé rather than envoyée because the m in m'ont is an indirect object?

Bonjour Kevin,

Yes, that's correct! 

Ils m'ont envoyé des photos they sent me pictures

Ils ont envoyé des photos à qui ? = To whom did they send pictures? 

-> à " m' " (me) = to me -  indirect object -> no agreement

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
