Thanks to Laura & Jason for giving us the opportunity to share their specially chosen location for their engagement shoot. Shooting at the Gaiety was an amazing experience & thanks to the Gaiety for the assistance on lighting on the day. Laura has given us an insight of why the picked the Gaiety for their location Engagement Shoot.
Before we ever met, one of our biggest shared loves was performing & music. Jason grew up playing gigs with rock bands & I was always on stage in either tutus or tap shoes.
While studying in DCU we were introduced; through mutual friends, to DCU Drama Society & in 2005 I produced the annual musical; Guys & Dolls, & Jason managed the sound & lighting. It was during this show that we started dating.
The first time Jason officially asked me out, he invited me to go & see a show with him. Little did I realise until we got there...he would actually be operating the sound desk! I spent most of our first 'date' running backstage with spare microphones & batteries!!!
Ten years on & not much has changed...Jason runs his own Sound Design company & I love performing with Coolmine Musical Society. Theatres are a huge part of our lives & where we spend so much of our time! We've seen & been involved in hundreds of shows over the years & met many wonderful friends along the way! So when selecting a location for our engagement shoot, it was an obvious choice! Ireland has so many fantastic theatres, so trying to choose one was tough, but The Gaiety is one of our favourites. It’s so iconic, beautiful & historic. We were delighted to be able to use such a special location as our backdrop!
We'd like to thank the wonderful crew & staff in The Gaiety for making it all happen!
