would it be good if we took photos from years ago...we go married this year but dated since we were in high school (2005)

It's better to be over-prepared than to not have the evidence you know you could have brought but decided to leave at home...

I brought plenty of pictures but the IO did not want to see any. I showed her evidence that my wife has the right of survivorship (making my house hers if I die) and we brought our daughter. That's all we needed but I did bring plenty more...Basically, whatever I could think of that would show that we live together.

Question about pictures - at this day and age of digital photos, does it make any difference in bringing those as they do not have a date on them? Or can you print them with a date from a digital file?

None of my pictures had a date on them. I don't think it matters one bit. If you are concerned, pick some pictures that show you at different times of the year (if there are seasonal changes where you are).

Actually, yes. The longer you can demonstrate that you've had a relationship, the better it will look.

Like others have said, the more the better. Organize your pictures in an album, save any mail that comes to you both including holiday cards. If you have 3 people that can sign notarized statements that they know you and the marriage is real, even better.
