Can't imagine this being a problem.
You don't want it to sound like a shopping list. And you don't want to it to be too sentimental. My suggestion is have a happy middle. Talk about your relationship and how it developed (in the first person), mentioning any significant events that led to the progression of the relationship.
Passport photo is required of applicant, not sponsor.
That's perfect. Thanks for the reply, Tijanaoc. It helps put me a little more at ease.
