Here are some thoughtful ideas for your Valentine’s Day book, including quote ideas and photos:

  • First Date: Photos from your first or second date are perfect for a Valentine’s Day photo book. If you don’t have a photo from your first date, include another photo from a different date.
  • Vacation Photos: Include a few shots from your adventures to reminisce on past trips.
  • Wedding Photos: If you’re married, include your favorite wedding photos in your photo book to cherish your biggest day together.
  • Kids: Whether you have a newborn baby or they’re all grown up, you can show off your greatest accomplishment together—your children.
  • Selfies: Put your couple selfies to use by adding them to your project. Your photo book should feel personal and real, so don’t be afraid to pull photos from your Instagram account.
  • Family and Friend Group Photos: After plenty of family events together, consider adding a few photos of you two in larger groups.
  • Milestones: From graduations to award ceremonies, include important milestones that the two of you have experienced together.
  • Concerts and Sports Games: Include photos of memorable concerts or games you’ve attended together to relive the moment.
  • Romantic Quotes: When it comes to captions in your photo book, use a variety of romantic quotes throughout to help narrate your book.
  • Wedding Quotes: Choose a heartfelt wedding quote to pair with your wedding photos in order to capture the emotions of that day.
  • Short Love Poems: There’s nothing sweeter than a classic love poem. Try including a photo of a short love poem from one of your favorite authors or write your own to accompany your photos.
  • Love Letters: If they’ve ever written you a love letter, take a photo of the letter and add it to your photo book to complete your love story.
