There must be a minimum of (10) color photos submitted standard size 5×7 on glossy film. USCIS requires pictures of the couple without hats or sunglasses and preferably facing the camera.
Best to send in a variety like one at the Mall, another at the beach, at home, at a park, at church, on the front porch etc…
You want it to appear that you spent quality time together, so each picture should be a different setting wearing different clothing and holding each others hand in hand, arms around each other, her sitting on your lap, etc….
Full body shots are acceptable and close up’s but not to close where your faces look like a blur. Please do not send in blurry pictures please print your full names on back and date each photo also specify where the photo was taken at.
Things to Remember?
Select only good clear images without any cutting or cropping and USCIS does inspect your photos to see if any computer altercations have been done? You don’t need to send pictures of kissing or anything that shows to much affection in them.
It is okay to wear sunglasses in some outdoor pictures, but try not to have to many pictures with sunglasses. USCIS wants to see the faces of both couple.
Also wearing different clothing makes it look more like you spent quality time with each other.
Here are EXAMPLES of PHOTOS to not send!
Picture to dark, Wearing sunglasses while inside, Kissing couples cannot see their faces.
These are nice and should be considered to send into USCIS.
You can bring your digital camera or cell phone depending on it’s photo qualities with you to the Philippines and make hundreds of pictures with you and your Filipina Fiancee together.
The Philippines has much available photo stores that one can blue tooth, or insert a memory card or plug right into a computer and have your pictures developed pretty much all in one day.
Making hundreds of pictures can be time consuming especially if your on a short visit to the Philippines. So please make the best of your time and try to have someone take your picture with a different background each time, good lighting, different poses and different clothing on to make it appear that you both spent good quality time with one another.
Don’t Be Shy, Make Lots of PHOTOS!
