129-F photo assortment?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, this may be a silly question to some (and maybe all) but indecisiveness got the best of me

I am assembling my 129-F petition and I have quite a few photos included in my petition

Does the way you order your photos make things any easier on the adjudicator?

I just want to show the trips sorted in an efficient manner so I am deciding between ordering them chronologically/by events or sections such as only photos of my fiance and I and then a section only with family.

What do you think?

Doesn't matter?

Sections?

Chronologically?

Up to your own discretion?

Thanks in advance.

It doesn't make a difference. Just include photos of yourselves together, I included one with his mother and one with my father also. I did a collage on one page of 9 photos and wrote at the bottom that they were "photos of" and our names. You could include the places and dates for each photo if you wish but I don't see that making much of a difference. They just want you to show them that you two are in a relationship together and can prove it.

I didn't include that many photos, but I organized them by the trip. I made 2 trips to Colombia in March and May and so one grouping of photos was from March, the other from May. Don't worry too much about how you organize it, as long as the pertinent information is on the back: who is in it, where is it, when is it.

Timeline

It's best to show an assortment of dates (turn your time stamp application on, on your camera) and an assortment of participants. Show photos of the two of you as well as photos of you both with his/your family and/or friends. They want to see three things from these:

1) that you've met in person

2) that it's been at least once in the past 2 years (hence the time stamp feature)

2) that family approves of the relationship (though they don't necessarily state this anywhere)

Order doesn't matter so much.
