Use props.
Valentine’s Day is all about romance. Use props to liven up your photos and make them extra special. Some ideas are balloons, confetti, flowers, etc. You can also use backdrops or costumes if you wish.

Focus on the subject.
Choosing backgrounds that are too busy might take the focus away from your subject. Try to choose locations or backdrops that will complement your subject.

Natural lighting.
Use natural light as much as you can when taking photos. Natural light can add to the romantic feel of your photos. Try taking photos during dusk or dawn for magical photos.
