Russell Rebelo at Silversword Studios’ knowledge on web site building, design, and very importantly his marketing of my web-site has been extremely beneficial to my massage business.

Russell had my web-site up in less then three weeks, he is on the cutting edge of design and always has new ideas on how to market my business through the Internet.

Even after 10 year he is still working on how to keep me up to date with the newest technology and marketing trend. He is truly very valuable to my  business.
Thanks You Russell.

I’m really enjoying the website. Everyone comments on how pretty it looks and how easy it is to navigate.

Though those were definitely my wishes for the site, the true measure of its value is its performance: Does it earn its keep? We’ve increased traffic substantially. The number of sign-ups for our newsletter went from 4 or 5 in 6 months to over 20 per month.

Silversword Studios provided creative and unique ideas for our web-site. Kicking off a new company is challenging and Russell turned our ideas into a reality.

His in depth knowledge with color research, marketing, graphic design and presentation were invaluable to us.

Aloha Russell:
Thank you for all your great work on my two websites. I was impressed with how quickly you finished them, although I know how much work is involved.

And also with your knowledge and suggestions about attracting visitors to the sites, which is as important as having beautifully looking websites. So now I have both!

I also like the fact that we able to work together to come up with the best product – that you took my ideas and improved on them with your website knowledge (what kind of text is important for search engines to pick up, for example) as well as your marketing knowledge (what sells on Internet and what doesn’t).

Mahalo – till next project!

Aloha Russ,

Working with you was a delight. I gave you an idea of what I wanted and you surpassed it. When clients call me they invariably say that it’s the nicest website that they’ve seen.

They say that it reflects the name of my company, “A Simply Elegant Wedding” and find it easy to navigate. I couldn’t possibly be more pleased with working with you and the remarkable result of that collaboration.

As we say in Hawaii, you’re da kine!

With much respect and gratitude,
Owner of A Simply Elegant Wedding


Aloha Russell,
Your ability to capture beauty of person and place is amazing; being in front of your lens was transporting. I never felt so beautiful and the photos from the shoot are proof.

Thank you for your encouragement, your enthusiasm, and your eye for detail. I loved the time with you and the results. I don’t think 50 ever looked so good! Mahalo, Trudy L

You did a FANTASTIC job photographing our recent commitment ceremony. We really enjoyed working with you and will treasure the memories via your photos forever.



We just wanted to write you a quick note to thank you again for the beautiful photos you took of our wedding.

We really appreciate the outstanding work and we can’t wait to show them off to all of our friends and family.

Thanks again,

Matt and Katie
