Your Photographer for Artist Point, Mt Baker

Hi there! We are Traci and Bill, a husband and wife photo video team. We mainly capture Adventure Elopements and small weddings here at Adventure and Vow. However, we do live at the base of the mountain, about as close as you can live to the Artist Point area. We are thrilled to call this little slice of the North Cascades our home. We want to share this beauty with everyone that we can. Within this blog post you will find all the services and photography packages we offer for the Artist Point area and more information in regards to working with us as your photographer. We love this area as it is not only filled with beauty, but also great hiking, skiing, snow shoeing, star gazing and more outdoor activities. We look forward to capturing some of your story among the mountains!

Where is Artist Point?

Not to be confused with the Artist Point in Yosemite National Park, Artist point is a scenic view point in Washington State with 360 degree views of mountain peaks including Mt Baker and Mt Shuksan. It is in the North Cascade mountain range.

How to get to Artist Point?

It is located about three hours North of Seattle, WA and 1.5 hours from Bellingham, WA. You can get to Artist Point by by driving all the way to the end of hwy 542 (East bound).

Where to stay when visiting Artist Point?

Since the closet town to Artist Point is 45 minutes away a lot of people visiting simply do a day trip and then go back home or to their home base stay during travels. However, the area has a lot of camping options as you make your way up the mountain or by the Nooksack river. There are not really hotels in this area unless you travel back towards Bellingham, WA. If you want to stay close to the area/mountain you will likely want to book an Airbnb or VRBO in Glacier or Maple Falls, WA. Here are a couple of our favorite in the area: Cabin in Maple Falls and Cedar Cabin in Deming/Glacier area.

When to book a session at Artist Point?

Artist Point is only accessible via driving around mid summer to mid fall. Otherwise you can still access it by hiking in or snow shoeing when the road is not open. When planning be sure to check road conditions and avalanche conditions.

If you want to book a session in this area outside of the date range that the road is open to Artist Point we recommend checking out other great views in this area like:

  • Heather Meadows
  • Mt Baker Ski area
  • Picture Lake
  • Bagley Lakes

“You would be doing yourself a disservice to hire anyone but Traci. I went into the process with zero knowledge of the location and photographers in general, but Traci could not have been more helpful. The engagement went perfectly even with a small hiccup. So thankful this moment was captured for us!” – Christopher
