Couple and Pseudo-Couple Vintage Portraits to Emulate on Valentine's Day

Thinking of a peg for your Valentine’s Day shoot? Because love is in the air and couple shots are in mass production today, we bring you some of the most romantic or downright hilarious portraits of reel and real-life couples, as well as non-couples, from our Overly Descriptive Title series which will hopefully inspire you to pose for your own couple shots. While some of the pairs aren't really couples, their photos are just too sweet or too amusing, we couldn't help but share them.
