It’s just about Christmastime, which means you’re probably gearing up to take festive holiday photos.

Christmastime and the winter months, in general, are some of the most exciting times to take photos.

The colors, decorations, food and drink, and of course, the Christmas lights come together to give us a beautiful collection of holiday photos.

While you can get some great photos during the daytime, don’t forget that some of the best photographs happen at night.

Below I’m sharing a wonderful collection of Christmas images that will inspire you for your own holiday Christmas shoot. You can print off your photos, post them on your blog, upload them to your Instagram, and more.

Where possible, I’ve also included links for you to shop the photo.

The Best Christmas Photo Filters

You may be wondering where people get those festive holiday photo filters. You’ve probably installed countless filter apps on your phone and still haven’t been able to find those cool holiday filters.

Well, the answer is that they use Adobe Lightroom presets. Adobe Lightroom is a software that allows you to quickly and easily edit your photographs.

If you’re looking for holiday Lightroom presets, one of my favorite presets is the 25 Christmas Presets for Lightroom.
