I need to place my figure references between parenthesis for my Thesis. I've tried package \hyperref but it doesn't solve my problem.

If I try:

\autoref{'fig:label'} I get something like

Figure (1);

Here is my MWE:

\usepackage[colorlinks,allcolors=blue]{hyperref} % This will give us the hyperlinks

\documentclass[notitlepage, 12pt]{report}
