Tara and Marshall had their engagement session at a local cow farm and I can say… we all just could not stop smiling… from the gorgeous farm to the amazing cows we met and their sweet owners that let us borrow one for some fun! Tara and Marshall met at work, they both work in the same office in Morristown… and they started hanging out at happy hour outings after work, until Marshall worked up the courage to ask Tara out on a date! – Photographer Meely Dunn

Will You Marry Me?: Tara and Marshall got engaged in Santa Monica, California. “We were there on vacation. We were walking on the beach when Marshall asked someone if they would take a picture of us. When the picture was being taken, he got down on one knee. I didn’t know it was going to happen in that moment, but I had a suspicion it might happen sometime on that trip.”

 

What do you and Marshall like to do most together? Honestly, just hang out. We are both always so busy, the days we enjoy the most are when we can just wake up, walk to the bagel store, and come back to our house and watch Netflix all day.

 

 

What did you love most about your engagement session? The cows. The cows were definitely the most fun part. And the fact that it didn’t rain. I’m going to be honest, I’m not really sure what the significance of cows are, other than they are good luck, but I just love animals and think that they are an important part of life, and compliment to the hustle and bustle that we create for ourselves, and so some animal should be a part of any major life event.
