Does the evidence prior to marriage still help one's case (engagement ring receipts, talks about getting married, evidence of prior visit for engagement ceremony, etc. )?

Evidence prior to marriage is the most important I think. It establishes your courtship and how serious you were about your marriage. The same goes for after the marriage, you have to prove contact and interest in each as a couple in love would.

"In love" is nice but not required or the focus of a Consular Officer. Think in terms of bona fide RELATIONSHIP. Love letters are less important than communication about plans for a future together. Not knocking love and romance but it really is NOT the place to focus regarding immigration.

Good. I have tons of e-mails and skype info. The problem is, it's way too large. I'm taking an e-mail convo from every month since we started talking in October, and am submitting 2 or 3 skype calls every month (via screenshot).

Also have copies of all of her boarding passes for her trips, as well as a joint bank account we just opened together post wedding. Also have about 20 photos from the engagement ceremony, wedding reception, our trips to sea world, florida aquarium, saying goodbye at the airport and stuff.

Not to mention photos of wedding cards and gifts, as well as gift receipts of stuff we gave to each other.

Also, I'm about to get 4 or 5 sworn affidavits.

Sound good?

Yes, except gift receipts. They aren't necessary and they could raise the suspicion that someone is paying someone else for immigration purposes.
