Yes, photocopies are fine. You shouldn't send originals to USCIS at this stage unless specifically required. You can/should read the I-130 instructions before filing here: http://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/files/form/i-130instr.pdf

Good luck to all April 2015 filers (from an April 2014 filer that can't believe it's been a year already).
