Where To Take Photos with Santa in Las Vegas (Updating 2023)

Please note that we are updating this post regularly as the holiday season progresses.

Santa Claus is coming to town – which means it is time for photos with Santa in Las Vegas! When it comes to getting the kids ready for Santa, sometimes it can feel overwhelming. Where is the best place to go, how much is it going to cost, and do I need to reserve a spot or can I be spontaneous and just bring the kids by when they are in a good mood?

Don’t worry – we’ve got you covered.

Our team at Nevada Moms has been keeping an eye out for photos with Santa all around town, and we’re sharing all of the details. We are not including individual photographers doing sessions unless it is at a brick-and-mortar location or an annual experience.
