CHI's principal filmmaker Corbin Iaea was born and raised on the Island of Maui and grew up surrounded by artists in the wedding world. He picked up his first camera at the early age of six and eventually found his passion to be in the motion picture genre and not still life. "Aside from capturing memories I am an avid waterman," Corbin relates."Having the opportunity to explore this beautiful place has opened my eyes and shown me the amazing potential Maui offers.  Sharing my home through the eyes of newlyweds is a dream come true."

When Corbin isn't shooting, he can be found diving, fishing and surfing. Maui's ocean lifestyle allows him to expand his horizons in filming. "The many hours spent in Makena during summer and Ho'okipa in the winter gave me the drive to start my film career. I approach every session with the same enthusiasm I had when I first saw a friend's excited reaction to my video—it never gets old!"
