Valentine's Day Styled Photography

February came way too fast.

These styled photos have a love letter Valentine’s Day theme. They’re minimal, vintage-esque, and ready-to-go for all your social media scheduling needs. This is a premium set available for $9 and includes 21 photos and 1psd with 5 instagram story templates.

You can snag it here on my website or on my Creative Market Shop - they’re both the same price, so whatever is more convenient for you!

 

Flatlays + Minimal Love Letter Backgrounds

This set is intended for social media sharing and online Valentine’s Day related marketing promotions. They’re all square-sized and aesthetically matching.

Valentine's Day Design + Style

I used free fonts in the templates included. The templates incorporate a lot of white color blocking and negative space to emphasize the text added but a lot of the photos incorporate this white space on their own to make it easy for you to add in your text, branding, and promos.

The fonts used were Questa Grande (for the heading), available for free on Font Squirrel, and Poppins (for the Subtitles and Body), also available for free on Font Squirrel.

All photos can easily be loaded into Canva or any photo editing software (Photoshop happens to be a favorite of mine but there are plenty of alternatives). You can also save them on your phone or ipad and edit on a mobile app if that’s what you used.

All these photos can be designed easily with black and white but if you’re looking to add some color, I’ve included some palettes below to help you get the most out of using these photos for social media graphics.

Tip: Use these to help choose color blocks, overlays, and text colors when designing with these photos. For a cohesive look, design using only one color palette and ll of them can be combined with black and white.

 

blush Pastels for your Valentine’s Graphics

For a lighter design, use this palette. These colors will complement the Valentine’s Day stock photos while also toning them down to give off a neutral or romantic vibe.

deep pinks for your Valentine’s Graphics

This palette is great for a bolder design. Bold pinks worked into the Valentine’s Day stock photos will show off a fun, romantic setting.

whimsical blues for your Valentine’s Graphics

These blues are a great alternative to the classic pink Valentine’s Day but are still bolder than the pastel palette. Use these for a bright, fresh design.

Free Alternate Versions + Two Bonus Valentine's Photos

A few of the photos in the set include blank postcards to allow you to add your own marketing content or branding without cluttering the design. I’ve included a few of their alternate versions with the original postcards and two bonus photos below (all the alternate versions are included in the bundle when purchased). There’s also a download link available at the bottom of this post.

 

Coordinated Valentine's Day + February Themed Quotes

It’s never a bad thing to have too much content to choose from. I might’ve been on a bit of a Chainsmokers kick lately so all these quotes feature their lyrics. Save these images directly or download the freebie bundle (download link at the bottom of this post).
