We specialise in family portraiture so we encourage you to bring your whole family. Whether this be your multiple generations of your family, you and your partner or you and your pet or pets. The more the merrier, we can cater for groups up to thirty! Our artwork is intended to be in your home forever so we want you to ensure that your loved ones are all included.
Hair and Makeup is not a service we provide. Verve is about revealing the real you and celebrating it! Feel free to have your hair and makeup done on the day if you would like, however we recommend you simply apply makeup and style your hair, as you would for a night out. We find we get the best images if you come looking like yourself. Our talented photographers, retouch artists and studio lighting will ensure that you look your very best.
As we believe that every family is different we want to show this in the images. Instead of having props or clothes at the studio we encourage you to bring along a few changes of clothing and personal items that are special to you. One of our experienced pre-session stylists or photographers will help you prepare for your shoot in the weeks before your experience.
All Verve photography sessions are conducted in our light and contemporary studios. Our clients don’t need their home environment to feel comfortable; our photographers are skilled at putting you at ease and we have created the perfect environment to photograph you looking amazing, with the best in studio lighting and equipment.
At Verve, we believe that still, lifeless and posed images are a thing of the past. We find that we get the most vibrant and emotional images by having our subjects interact with each other, instead of posing for the camera! We believe you’ll love this different approach away from traditional portrait photography. Our aim is to celebrate the unique qualities of the relationships you’ve created with those you love.
You will view your images a few short days after your photography session. This is where your experienced designer will help you to decide on your favourites and choose your Verve artwork. It may take between 4-6 weeks from the time you confirm your order, for your artwork to be ready for collection from the studio.
Our photography experiences are conducted in our studios, we generally do not photograph weddings, however a Verve Couples Experience is a great way for the newlyweds to celebrate the occasion with relaxed and spontaneous images that are completely different to the traditional posed images often taken at weddings.
Many brides actually bring in their wedding dress to capture the essence of the day in Verve style (without the stress!)
As well as having the advantage of not being charged any interest on your promotional purchase for the specified promotional period, you don’t need to make any repayments towards that purchase for the deferred period of the promotional purchase. Some retailers call this, ‘Buy now, Pay later.’ Payments will be required once the payment deferred term has expired. Other transactions including fees and charges will require the minimum monthly repayment amount set out in your credit card statement.
Interest-Free* means you will not pay any interest on the promotional purchase you made with Verve during the promotional period. You will be required to pay the minimum monthly repayments as you would with any standard credit card purchase. Other transactions made with your credit card will incur interest charges. Upon expiry of your interest-free* period, any remaining balance will revert back to the cash advance rate of 25.99% pa at 07/12/2017 and subject to change.
Yes, you can use your card to make additional interest-free* purchases in-store up to your available credit limit. Simply bring your HSBC Visa card in-store and ask the attendant to process an ‘Add-on.’
Unless your payments are deferred, the minimum monthly repayment is the higher of $20 or 3% of the outstanding balance at the time of your credit card statement is issued. You must pay at least the minimum repayment set out in each statement on or before the due date. This is the date HSBC should receive your payment, not the date on which you make the payment. You should allow sufficient time for payments to be received and processed by HSBC before the due date.
