I want to know some ideas and suggestions on how to organize photos of me & fiance together for my interview. How many photos I should bring and how to organize them?Should I put them in an album or paste them one by one in bond paper and place them in a folder? Your ideas are greatly appreciated.Thanks!

When we were there the prescreener looked at several but she only asked for 2 photos of us together for the CO. It's probably better if they are removable from whatever you put them in.

We had ours in a flexible binder with clear vinyl pages that each held 4 4x6 photos and had a total of 28 pics of us with her family, just us in various locations and wedding pics. When the pre-screener ask for pics we flipped thru the album and she said just pull out 5 or 6.

God only knows what the minimum expectations are.

I brought about a dozen photos in a photo envelope.

Personally, I think more important than the arrangement of the photos is the relevancy of the photos.

Pictures of us together at a variety of landmarks around the country in different clothes. This shows that we traveled together and that we spent time together.

Pictures of us meeting with her family. Shows my sincerity.

Pictures of the wedding. More proof that we had a sincere marital relationship.

In our case, we had a pregnancy and I visited 3 times before the interview. pictures at different stages of the pregnancy. This shows that I came several times, was supportive, etc.

One close picture of us holding a newspaper. This really proves nothing, but it does show that we were looking at making evidence to provide if the case was ever reviewed.

Like I said, I don't really know what they were looking for. But I took and supplied pictures with the idea that I wanted to be able to prove something.

I stapled 10 pages of short bond paper, pasted 2 pictures on each page, labeled them according to their dates and location and the "album" easily went into the thin glass opening of the prescreener. Goodluck :)

I pasted them on bond paper (2 photos per page), put labes (date, place and whatever we're doing in the picture) and put them in a clear folder for easy access. Caption is an advantage... the CO won't have to ask about every picture he's looking at. Just make sure that it's done neatly and presentable looking. And also, make sure it can go through the slots of the booth. During my interview, someone brought a scrapbook and the pre-screener asked her submit relevant and recent photos so she had to tear them off the book. She was complaining afterwards because according to her, she spent hundreds of pesos for it just to make it nicer.

Good luck!

Andre took 3 scrapbooks full of pictures. The interviewer looked at a few and then said he'd seen enough.

I also had color copied some, three to a page, with names, dates, and places written on the paper. They didn't keep any of ours.

here's how i did mine... i slide a huge pic in front of the folder so i know its the "photo folder". then 3 pics in every page, with captions, dates, names and where. and with family most especially lol. i had to make sure he's got a solo pic with mom or with grandma lol... a bunch of them are in a very familiar landmarks like camiguin, cdo, camarines that its easy for them to indentify esp with my pre-screener he knows by looking at the pic he can tell its camiguin by giving some coments like "oh so you've been to camiguin, i like it there and cdo is a clean city too" etc... so that helps a lot for me to responed and made a little conversation about it... good luck!
