Viking portrait
Feb 2020 • Solo
This was super fun. And the staff was friendly, creative, and warm. I went alone so I was nervous and awkward but the photographer took great care of me and put me at ease. These are not glamour shots you will look weathered for authenticity.

Highlight of my trip to Iceland and Reykjavik
Mar 2020
Found this gem, when I was looking for unique things to do in Reykjavik. I loved the reviews and the photo gallery. I initially tried to convince the group I was traveling with that a photo shoot should be part of our itinerary. The group was not as enthusiastic as I was. With or without them I decided that i was going to be a "viking" for the day.
The studio was easy to find and Gudmann and Carla were so much fun. They asked questions to make sure that the experience was what I was looking for. They picked the perfect "outfit" for me and even incorporated some props that I had brought from home. (notice the tiaria)
The whole session was awesome and exceeded my expectations. Added bonus that the pictures were absolutely amazing. I cant say enough good things about Carla and Gudmann and the Mink Viking Potrraits experience!!!

Ooops! We did it again!!!

That's right! My husband and I went Viking for a second time at Mink Viking Portrait Studio. And let me tell you, we have no regrets! Mink makes unleashing your inner Viking so much fun, that we just could not resist going back for a second photo session. We had originally visited the studio back in 2018 with both sets of parents in tow. Everyone had such an amazing experience and the photos were wonderfully unique mementos of our trip. So when we found ourselves back in Reykjavik this past December, solo this time, we couldn't resist going for a second shoot. Once again, the session itself was a blast and the resulting photos are amazing! And definitely distinct from our first shoot - different clothing & weapons. Such a unique and personal Icelandic souvenir. Guðmann & Carla are fantastic to work with. Really, you absolutely do not want to miss out on this when you visit Reykjavik!

A True Viking Experience!
Mar 2020
My wife and I where on our honeymoon in Reykjavik and I wanted a few things to surprise her on the trip. I saw a link on facebook to the shop and had a few emails back and forth before booking (several weeks before). Good communication throughout. When we arrived and realised how close it was to everything in Reykjavik it was even better. We where welcomed in and within minutes looking like a king and queen from ancient times. The lady in the shop was amazing and dressed us up perfectly o look the part. We looked like something straight out of a TV show and the studio really helps get you in the right frame of mind. Couple this with dramatic Viking music and you're really in the mood for some pillaging!! The photos where amazing and whilst we are both camera shy we had a lot of fun posing and carrying various weapons to add to our attire. The finished product was beyond my expectation and has added to our whole experience of Iceland. Thanks alot Mink (and Carla) - Keep up the good work.

Amazing experience
Jan 2020
My boyfriend and I came here on out last day in Iceland and it did not disappoint. It was like taking a step back in time going into the studio. So informative and we had so much fun. The photos were absolutely amazing! Can't recommend enough.

Way beyond expectations
Jan 2020
My husband and I were in Reykjavik on our honeymoon and came across their sign while we were out wandering around. What the heck, we thought, maybe it looks cheesy but it will sure be a memory, and we booked an appointment.

We were in for a total surprise - okay, maybe it is a little hokey, but the photographer has an amazing studio with costumes and props and is stunningly talented. The resultant photos are some of the best I've ever seen, the quality is outstanding. If we ever start an Icelandic metal band we have at least three album covers already. Quick turnaround with delivering the proofs and the final portraits, you get low-res images with watermarks in the corner, perfect for posting online, and high-res images with no watermarks. The photographer is very talented.

Excellent time and lifelong memories
Nov 2019
I had read about a person's photo shoot, prior to arriving to Iceland. Her experience seemed magical and her husband enjoyed it too. This is already something that I would be interested in, so I decided to book a time for when I would be in Iceland. I emailed in advance and I feel like the response was prompt. Keep in mind that this is a month a two before I will arrive, but I think they would be able to have last minute reservations if there are any openings. I got there a before my photo shoot and met Carla, who was the photographer for my photo shoot. She was not the person from the blog that I had read, but that did not prevent me from still having an ear to ear grin (totally excited for the experience). She was very personable and knowledgeable, which works well with her excellent photography skills. I was able to take a few shots with another American and his two sons. Those ended up being really cool, in my opinion, and made the trip even more memorable. Carla was great because I had an ear to ear grin most of the photo shoot. However, she was extremely patient and polite, which I truly appreciated. She was able to help me get a more serious look, which made the pictures more special. It's funny because either my dad or sister said they didn't recognize me (I'm usually smiling but my smile was bigger in Iceland). They give you an option to buy the pitures in different packages and I chose the package that included all of the pictures. I felt like it was a great deal for the experience and it is something that I will be able to go back and look at in the future. In addition, I was able to buy a braclet that they sold in the studio, which I will start wearing soon. The blog talked about the owner, who also was the person who took the pictures for the person who wrote the blog. He seemed like a person that you could talk with a lot and get some of the Viking Heritage. Carla was not a decendent from Vikings, but she was very knowledgeable and was able to answer most of our questions. I was and am very pleased with all of the photos that she took, and she too had great stories about her Iceland experiences. I have and will recommend Mink Photography to family and friends.

Awesome experience!!!

This is a great once in a lifetime opportunity if you find yourself in Iceland and love Viking culture! Very kind, professional, and encouraging if you are a little nervous to be photographed! Very knowledgeable, so you may just learn something while you are there. Highly recommend.

Great experience
Oct 2019 • Couples
We were recently in Rykavik walking around and saw the add on the side of the building and thought why not? Was very happy we gave it a try. This is a very well done photography studio. The most authentic pictures I've ever seen. Godmann is incredible. I highly recommend this. You will have a great time and love his photography work!
