I read on VJ that I should write the names of the people present in the photograph, such as family member names. If I am sending some wedding photographs, do I need to write the names of my relatives or friends as well? or do I just say petitioner and beneficiary wedding picture with relatives?

Petitioner and beneficiary wedding picture with relatives is absolutely fine.


ROC from CR-1 visa (Green Card expiration date was Nov 24th 2016)

 

Link to the evidence I submitted. Be sure to send evidence spanning your entire marriage (especially for K-1) or as far back as you can. Just one or two bank statements will not cut it. I primarily focused on the two years of living here since I came in on a CR-1. If you don't have the fundamentals (i.e. joint accounts/policies), you can explain why in the covering letter. E.g. "While we do not have joint utilities, we both contribute to them from our joint bank account".

April 6th 2018: Card in hand. Has incorrect "resident since" date. Submitted service request on I-751 case (typographical error on permanent resident card) and an I-90 online.

April 2018 - August 7th 2018: Tons of service requests, emails and now senator involvement to get my corrected green card back because what the heck, USCIS. Also some time in May I sent a letter to Potomac telling them I want to withdraw my I-90 since CSC were handling it.

August 8th 2018: Card in production thanks to the direct involvement of Senator Sherrod Brown's team

August 13th 2018: Card mailed

August 15th 2018: Card in hand with correct date. :joy:

October 31st 2018: Potomac sends out a notice stating they have closed out my I-90 per my request. Yay for no duplicate card drama.

I agree with Ketsuban, but I'll also add that a lot of VJ members will name important/close family members in smaller group photos -- (i.e.: with Beneficiary's parents Jack and Jill Smith, etc.) -- the added detail doesn't hurt.

That being said, you don't need to name every person in a massive group shot from your wedding. Be consistent and think about who you want to highlight for the officer looking at your case. For my package I noted brothers/sisters/parents by name. Think about what makes sense for your case.

In ours we didn't identify anyone-labeled each page with title ie. wedding pics, formal reception pics, and informal reception pics. we had 4 pictures per page.
