THANK YOU TO ALL OF THE WONDERFUL PEOPLE THAT WE HAVE HAD THE PRIVILEGE TO WORK WITH IN STUDIO AND ON LOCATION. WITHOUT YOU, NONE OF THIS WOULD BE POSSIBLE — BOB HARPER PHOTOGRAPHY
“Bob was introduced to our family through an organization to which he freely gives of himself, his amazing ability, his resources, and his time! Our family was truly blessed by Bob’s ingenuity, his artistry, and ultimately his kind and giving spirit! He was so patient with our three children who all decided to have breakdowns at one point or another during our session and he patiently spoke to each of them, encouraged to smile, waited, and shot photos all while we settled children and played Moana in the background! We are so proud of the finished portrait and will cherish this beautiful work of art for all time! I can truly say without a doubt in my mind, that if you choose Bob to capture your family’s portrait, you will not be disappointed! Not for a second! Thank you Bob!” Felicia Taylor
“We had a unique introduction to Bob and know him first hand by his generosity to serve the local community. After receiving a fatal diagnosis for our first child at the 19 week gender scan, we were given a list of grief resources in the area. Bob was on the list to offer us maternity photos to capture this moment in our lives. Upon meeting him multiple times to prep for our pictures, his kindness and ease of conversation made us comfortable to smile bravely in a truly heartbreaking situation. Bob would go on to invite us back a second time for indoor portraits and continued to reach out to us with well wishes throughout the weeks to come. Our son went on to have a miraculous birth story and we were able to celebrate with Bob for a very special Father’s Day portrait. I could not be more thankful for documenting our growing family.” — Laura Hershberger
“Bob had me for graduation portrait and we spent a very good time taking it. His guides for posture and eyes were very professional, wise and making confident. His words made me decent when I saw the pictures. I am satisfied with the portrait and I receive many compliments. He really did very good job! Thanks Bob for making me look good!”
“Bob is an amazing photographer who kept us at ease, had amazing patience with my special needs little son, and was able to capture the love of our family in photos. Also, an amazing person altogether. Not to mention the incredible colors, definition, etc in the prints and the canvas picture…perfection. So excited to show and share with family and friends!!!” — Myra Z-Whiteman
“Bob’s a fantastic photographer. Makes me look much better than in real life. A monumental task!” — Scott Miller
“Bob has done family photos and professional site photos for me. He is the definition of professional.” — Jim Hicks
“I loved my session with Bob!!! He knows how to put you at ease and find your best side. This is by far one of the best head shots i have ever had and I would recommend him to my family, friends, colleagues, and clients. Don’t pass this guy up, he knows his business and a huge heart for what he does! Thanks Bob for making me look good!!!!”
“Bob recently rescued us when my 20-something daughter needed an executive portrait and was given very little notice. Most of her peers had to resort to a ‘selfie’. Bob did her college graduation photos but she’s in Richmond now and wasn’t familiar with local photographers. Bob worked her in quickly one evening and turned the photo around very quickly. I couldn’t be more pleased that he’s now captured two of Kayleigh’s life transitions.” — Katherine Glass
"A true professional! Bob is a pleasure to deal with and always exceeds expectations!"

"Bob: Thank you (and Jenny) for all of your professionalism in preparing the photo of Hampton City's First City Council (c. 1952). Your efforts and donation speaks so highly of your love of Hampton."

"Bob & Jennie were great throughout the entire wedding planning process. They really took the time to talk with my husband and I about the event to see what exactly we wanted. Everything ran so smoothly the day of the wedding because of how organized and detailed they were in different consultations. Everyone that I talk to that is engaged, I highly recommend Bob."

"I have known Bob Harper for a few years now as part of my Rotary Club. He was always taking photographs for the club functions, and they were really well done. I got engaged in February of 2010 with a Wedding Date of November 13, 2010. I was tasked with selecting the photographer to cover our engagement photos and our wedding. Bob came so highly recommended that I asked him if he would shoot our engagement and wedding. I expected good things from Bob, but my wife and I were BLOWN AWAY! All of the pictures were phenomenal. Bob was always available and went the extra mile for us to make sure we were happy and provided so many wonderful services and options for us. We have had so many complements regarding our wedding and engagement photographs. Bob and his staff were amazing at all of our photo-shoots and were consumate professionals. Then to top everything off I was braced for a large bill at the end of the experience. (I mean wedding photographs are expensive, right?) Without going into too much detail, Bob Harper's prices were the most competitive and lowest that I found. PERIOD. The competition was not even close. I spoke with friends who had gotten married recently and they were astounded at the reasonable price my wife and I paid. Bob was significantly better priced than anything suggested on the Knot or Wedding Channel websites by far. In summary, Bob Harper Photography is the best kept secret in the Hampton Roads area. You will be impressed. you will be satisfied. Most importantly, you will feel like your photographer is not there to make money off of you. In fact you will feel like Bob is there to make sure that your special event is captured for all time in the best way possible. You can't put a dollar figure on that kind of relationship. I plan on going back to Bob for family portraits or any of my photography needs. Three to four paragraphs is no where near enough to say all of the positive things about Bob Harper and Bog Harper Photographer. Make an appointment and go see for yourself. His website reads "When the moment counts." Don't let your moment pass by with sub-standard or overpriced photography. Go see Bob today."
"Bob Harper Photography is Outstanding! If you desire elegant personal or professional images, Bob Harper Photography Studio has my family's highest recommendation. We were introduced to Bob Harper Photography through their pro bono charity work (providing professional maternity photos for qualifying parents). From the first phone call I knew they were a cut above. Bob and Jenny made every effort to get to know us and match the photo session with our personality and expectations. Bob took hundreds of photos during our session and captured my family perfectly. There were so many great shots to choose from that we had tough time narrowing down our final purchase. Today, as I look at our displayed photos, I smile knowing we are captured at our best because of the care and professionalism we received at Bob Harper Photography."

"If you really want to get your money’s worth out of your Digital SLR camera, this seminar is a “must attend” event! I found that Bob Harper’s extensive knowledge, experience and passion for photography, coupled with his easy-going manner, enabled him to turn all of the technical jargon into simple to understand instructions and techniques. The seminar explained the mysteries of Files, Color Space, White Balance, Histograms, Dynamic Range, Flash, Depth of Field, Metering and even those odd buttons and Menus on the camera! Without a doubt this was six hours, on a Saturday, extremely well spent. My Daughter and I have to be better photographers after attending this seminar. Thank you Bob!"
Happy Workshop Attendee
"I have known and worked with Bob for over ten years. When my wife and I needed a formal portrait of our son for his college graduation later this year, we thought of Bob due to his ongoing interest in photography and his newly established studio in Hampton. We are truly thrilled with the results! Bob spent a lot of time setting up multiple test shots with varying effects, and as a result, we had a wide selection of top-notch photos to choose from. He also arranged for the pictures we selected to be matted and framed, which resulted in a simple yet elegant presentation. Bob's work will appear on my mother-in-law's wall of formal portraits of her grandchildren; in our home; and however our son's girlfriend chooses to display hers. Bob's price and quality are outstanding. We will be returning to his studio in the future for a family portrait, and we will wholeheartedly recommend his services to others."

"There is a three room studio in downtown Hampton, where digital photography is practiced as a fine art. With wonderful backgrounds and lighting, we just had our family photos taken there, and highly recommend it to everyone wanting a fine family portrait. The photos can be printed wall size, in house, with first class results. We have also just experienced Bob Harper as a photography instructor. Giving classes in the studio, Bob Harper is a walking encyclopedia of all things pertaining to digital photography. This is a great addition to business on Queen Street."
"Bob did a great job of taking my ideas for colorful, non-traditional portraits for my professional graphic design website (not yet live) and making them become reality. I brought props and my friend Jo Louise came with props I asked her to bring and helped me choose what to use for each shot... and helped with makeup! Then Robert R. Harper Jr. worked studio magic and later his Photoshop magic wand, making me look like me, but improved. I saw the "before" Photoshop images so I fully appreciate Bob's talent and his knowing where to stop so I still look like myself and not Joan Rivers! I can whole-heartedly recommend anyone needing a professional photographer use Bob Harper Photography"

"When I realized my relatives were coming into town for a rare reunion, I knew I wanted to do something special to commemorate the occasion. I chose Bob Harper to take a family portrait because I knew he was highly respected as a photographer and as generous contributor in our local community. What I did not know at the time was just how pleased I was going to be with the entire process and the end result. The actual photography session was fun and engaging; Bob’s manner is friendly and relaxed and yet professional and productive at the same time. The finished portrait blew me away; actually having a picture of my family impacted me like no other mere “item” could. If you have any interest in having a portrait done, I implore you to employ Bob’s services. Bob doesn’t just give you a picture; he gives you a personal treasure that lasts forever"
"They are a very professional and detail oriented company. I held a gap and gown session their and it went amazing. The studio is very nice. Im glad to support this small downtown business"

"This class has been a wonderful experience. It was such a comfortable environment with such a skilled instructor. Knowledge without fear of feeling silly."
"Gave me confidence in my capabilities to achieve better photographs... Becoming an artist as I photograph."
"Mr. Harper is patient and understanding of our limitations and assists us to improve our abilities."
"Bob Harper is the total professional. He is wonderful to work with and especially wonderful working with children because he respects them. He does a beautiful job and the only problem is choosing which portrait to make. Bob is able to give you what you want because his pictures are works of art. We still find ourselves looking at the portrait all the time"
James & Beth P.
"I hired Bob for my own Family Reunion, and have worked with him on several other projects. His many years of experience shine through in delivery of the final product. He’s considerate, extremely personable, and in-tuned to the events of the day’s work, and always makes clients feel right at home. Bob Harper Photography is first class all day, every day. He’s a Professional’s-Professional!"

Very happy with the work done by this studio!"
