Another expression is: Te quiero.

Te amo can be used between people in various relationships, like between family members and close friends. Te quiero, on the other hand, is used only for romantic situations.

Te amo- romantic/passionate love
Te queiro- close friends, family

Excerpt from Qfreed's link:

"No, querer also means to love, though amar has a deeper sense, as it has been already told. Besides, querer doesn't have a sexual sense as you say. Perhaps, the right verb to express sexual desire without sounding coarse would be desear: "Te deseo".

So, I would say "querer" is used with close friends and family; "amar" with romantic relationships.
