    Great company, amazing photos
    Absoltely loved Mink Viking Portraits. On our scheduled shoot time we met with the owner and he was very kind and patient but my little boys were very tired and one wouldn't stop crying. Without hesitation he let me reschedule our shoot within our vacation time. During our rescheduled shoot we met with James I believe his name was (he's American). He was very kind and worked at the pace my boys felt comfortable with. He was very friendly the entire time and got some great shots for us. The turn around time was incredibly fast, less than 24 hours and the pricing was very reasonable. Would definitely recommend this to anyone!

    An amazing experience
    If I could give Mink studio 10 stars I would as it was one of the most memorable ,enjoyable unique things i've ever done . It was definitely a highlight of my recent trip to lovely Reykjavik It was a fantastic, unforgettable experience. It was very empowering too. The photographer Ryan is so professional couldn't have been nicer. He was so welcoming warm and friendly he put me at my ease and quickly encouraged my inner Viking to boldy step forth ! The studio set up the costumes and props are so authentic which makes the whole experience even more enjoyable. The swords are fantastic. This experience isn't gimmicky at all! If you visit Reykjavik don't leave without without doing the photoshoot. The photos you recieve are brilliant the whole experience is so unique and good value for money. The Studio is easy to find too . Only one thing the studio is upstairs; up two flights of narrow stairs so it isn't wheelchair accessible however they guys are so nice I'm sure if you let them know well in advance they will go out of their way to help you 😊 Plus there's 2 studio cats 🐈 😻

    Mink Rocks.
    We saved Mink for our last day in Iceland. What a blast. Ryan was awesome. I love anything Viking, so getting to try on different outfits and props was fun and new. The chain armor was heavy, but worth it in regard to the pictures. We laughed a lot and have something really cool to look at to remind us of our amazing adventure trip to Iceland. Just do it.

    Fun experience in Reykjavik
    Wonderful experience ! The quality of the pictures is amazing and they were very professional and educative . I have teen boys that didn’t want to do this with me initially bur they had a great time and now they love the pics and learned facts about the Vikings that they didn’t know

    A Truly Remarkable Experience
    Our journey to Iceland was made extraordinary, in no small part due to our experience at Mink Viking Portrait with Ryan. A trip planned to commemorate my best friend and my 30th birthdays wouldn't have been complete without a session at Mink Viking Portrait, which was, quite rightly, at the top of our bucket list. Despite initial hitches with the booking, Ryan graciously accommodated us by extending his working hours to get us in for a last minute session before the weekend. Stepping into the studio is akin to stepping into a different era - a veritable feast for enthusiasts of historical fashion and weaponry. It was a joy to explore, even taking turns to swing some of the weapons while waiting our turn for the photo session! Ryan created an immersive atmosphere, punctuated by thematic music, and a dazzling array of tunics, furs, and swords. What followed was an hour of fun and laughter at our attempts conjure the most authentic facial expressions for the photos, under Ryan's patient guidance. An added bonus was getting to hear tales of his time working on Game of Thrones, which lent an extra layer of intrigue to the experience. Despite the late hour, our edited photos arrived promptly within the hour. The session was an absolute riot, an enriching learning experience wrapped up in an exhilarating package of fun. I wholeheartedly recommend Mink Viking Portrait to anyone in search of unique, unforgettable experiences.

    A Most Excellent Vacation Memory
    One of the highlights of our trip. Ryan was great in picking out just the right outfit and accessories to create the perfect environment and mood. We also learned about history, weapons and Mink Studios connection to GOT. Excellent photos and lots of different poses to choose from. A snap to view/download the pics you wish to purchase. Shout out to Ryan and Mink Viking Portrait Studio for an excellent experience!

    You can feel the Viking vibe
    The experience was fantastic, and the photographer had an abundance of unique ideas and original artifacts. The atmosphere was wonderful with music and a captivating setting, making everything feel cozy and professional. Overall, I had an amazing time during the Viking transformation and photo shoot. The photographer's creativity and attention to detail made the whole experience enjoyable and memorable. The photos turned out to be stunning. While the price was quite high, it was worth it. I highly recommend this experience to anyone looking for a fun and professionally executed photo shoot.

A MUST do experience when visiting Reykjavik! It’s right downtown and easy to walk to from many hotels (centrally located. While my boyfriend and I picked out what to wear for the shoot, we got to chat with the photographer and learn some fun facts and history! Gudmundr our photographer was wonderful! Great photographer, learned a lot about Icelandic and Viking history and had great conversation. I HIGHLY recommend Mink Viking Portrait Studios.

Very interesting and informative photographer but also so much fun. My wife and I could not have been happier with anything. The costumes and props were excellent and the photographs turned out absolutely brilliant.
Many thanks Mink studios

I celebrated my birthday with a photo shoot at Mink Viking Portrait Studio. Ryan was great-he made me feel comfortable, and it was easy for me to get into the spirit of the photo shoot. Very happy with the results.

This was my second trip to Mink. I was there with friends in 2017, and went with my sister on this visit. We had an amazing time both visits. Gudmann was very knowledgeable and so kind. He created such amazing pictures where we truly looked like Vikings! Even though I have had these pictures made during my two visits to Iceland, I will have them done again every time I visit. Truly an amazing and unforgettable experience!!! I would recommend this to everyone!
