Citizen through Naturalization - Which passport to send?

Good afternoon,

I became a US citizen through naturalization in February 2012. I am now going through the process of filling out all the information necessary for the I-129F to bring my Canadian fiance to the US.

Since I only recently received my US passport, most of the passport stamps proving travel on the dates when we met in Canada are only available on my Canadian passport. Is there an issue with copying all pages of my Canadian passport and including them with the packet as proof of meeting?

Would it be better if I send in all pages of my American passport additionally? I am already sending a copy of my naturalization certificate.

Your help is appreciated.

Thanks!

Send a copy of the US passport OR your citizenship certificate to show your citizenship. Send copies of your Canadian passport to show evidence of travel.
