Advised by his singles coach to try pairs due to his height and build, Morozov joined Nina Mozer's group in 2007. He skated three seasons with his first partner, Irina Moiseeva. They won three medals at Warsaw Cup — novice gold in 2007 and 2008 and junior silver in 2009 — and junior gold at the 2009 NRW Trophy. They split at the end of the 2009–10 season.

Tarasova was taken to the hospital and found to have no serious injury. After winning the national junior title a month later, the pair was assigned to the 2014 World Junior Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria. They won the silver medal after placing second in both segments and finishing 5.57 points behind China's Yu Xiaoyu / Jin Yang.
