Where can I find the right Valentine’s Day Photos

Our recommendation is to use a personal photo. Saying “I love you” or really anything sentimental to someone close is deeply personal. This is why the image you use should be something that the 2 of you share on a deeper level. Don’t just pick the best picture you have of the 2 of you, but pick the image that best reminds you of a special moment you shared, like you holding hands, goofing around in the elevator mirror, or maybe something fun you did together.

Whatever you do, though, nude photos are not cool for romance. It had to be said 😎

This is why all the images you see on this page can be edited. They are all templates from PostMuse, which means you can edit and change anything about them. Check it out on iOS and Android.

It’s not always the case that you have a good enough photo lying around. What you can do as a second best in this situation is use a cute photo from Unsplash or Pixabay.

Emoji or simple Story ideas

Sometimes not a lot needs to be said. The simple fact that you send a personal message is enough for the other person to get the point. There are, however, symbols that can help you get the message across. The heart is the most obvious symbol you can use. Did you know there are 27 heart-related emojis or characters? Some of them might not be as used or supported by all devices, though. Here they are:💌 ❣️ 💒 💓 💔 💕 💖 💗 💘 💙 💚 💛 💜 💝 💞 💟 🧡 🏩 ❤️ 🖤 😍 🥰 ♡ ❣ ❥ ♥︎ ❤︎. One of them is a Love Hotel. Who decides these things? 😍🏩

Are you using a Mac? Let me share a little tip: Press [Control + Command + Space] to get to a little-known tool that helps you search for emojis.

Pick a heart. Any heart! ❤️💘

A second symbol we found fun to use is a simple star ⭐️. It has a quick magical, whimsical effect and that’s just how being in love sometimes feels.

For more intricate symbols, you can use an online resource like freepik to find all kinds of assets. Here is what a simple search for love on freepik will give you.

Freepik: "love" search. Find symbols and emojis in PostMuse as well.

Did you know that 48% of small businesses in the US can barely post once per week to Instagram? Also, did you know that posting daily makes an account grow 56% more every month, compared to posting just once per week?
