The photoshooting is one of the things "you have to do" in Reyjavik, absolutely great, fun and a totally different experience, I was ther the second time and next year do it again, especially with other clothing :)

It's fun to get dressed up in authentic Viking clothing, and it's even better to get a bunch of incredible photos to keep. The photographer teaches you about the clothing and armor they wore, the weapons they use, and makes you feel totally at ease.

Sorry, not sure. We didn't get any discount as a couple, but he gave us an individual photo shoot as well as a joint one. Maybe if you asked him just to do joint ones it might be cheaper.
