Valentines Day is a special day for couples to express their love and appreciation for each other. Whether you are planning an intimate dinner at home, or a romantic getaway, consider documenting this special day with beautiful, heartfelt photographs! Here are some tips for how to make your couple photos the best they can be.
Find the Perfect Location
Location is key when it comes to taking beautiful couple pictures. Think about what type of backdrop will complement your outfits and create the perfect mood. For example, if you are looking for something more natural and outdoorsy, then go to your favourite beach or take a drive to North Side. If you are looking for something more urban and classical, consider exploring the centre of George Town for example.
Camana Bay is also a very versatile spot for photographs as it offers a great variety of nature and flower backdrops as well as an urban feel in the shopping and business areas.
Choose Your Outfits Carefully
What you wear says a lot about who you are as a couple, so choose wisely when selecting your outfits! The goal should be to create an ensemble that both highlights your individual personalities while still coordinating with each other. I suggest starting by choosing one primary piece, such as a jacket or dress, and building from there. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different colours and textures either, but always keeping in mind your environment, you are striving for everything to blend well in together.
Adding props can be a great way to add personality to your pictures. Whether it’s flowers, balloons or a letter board – props can create unique compositions that reflect your relationship as a couple. Just make sure not too overdo it as having too many props can look tacky and take away from the focus of the photo (you two!).
Make It A Family Affair
If you are in a relationship and Valentine’s Day is your jam, you may want to reach out to a photographer for a romantic photoshoot. But who says singles or families cannot celebrate Valentine’s Day too? Grab your camera or phone and go on a photoshoot with your friends or kids to capture your love. With these tips in mind, you will be sure to capture love and light this Valentines Day.
