Schulyz said she wanted to help her husband get his photography published.
She said she was motivated by his passion for photography, and his story of wanting to get published was the first of many.

“I’m going to do the same thing with you.”
The couple started selling wedding photographs for $2.50 and soon had hundreds of clients, including major publishing houses and celebrities.
But they soon discovered that a photographer’s photo can’t be published in the same way that a story is published, and they couldn’t find a way to share the work.

“It’s something that is very meaningful to me.
I think it’s really exciting to be able to be a part of something that could be positive and create a lot more awareness and change for photographers around the country.”
Schulze’s husband, who died in 2012, was a photography instructor at Natick High School and taught at Newport State University before he became a photographer himself.
He said he wanted to offer a gift to his wife, and when he got the idea for his own business, he contacted Schulezes husband.
SchULZER’S PHOTOWORKSThe couple said they have used the wedding photos as inspiration for the photography book They are also planning to create a wedding gallery, and are working on plans for a book.
Schuli’s husband was born in 1946 and died in 2015.
He was the son of former Natick resident and former governor, James R. Schuler.
The couple has seven children, ages 9 to 17, from his children.
