The stars are located in the vicinity of the reflection nebula NGC 7129. Our photometric data show that both stars exhibit strong photometric variability in all optical passbands, which is typical for Classical T Tauri stars. Using our observational data we analyze the reasons for the observed brightness variations. In the case of V977 Cep we identify previously unknown periodicity in its light curve. Description: BVRI photometric data of V977 Cep and V982 Cep during the period from 2000 October to 2016 August are presented. The CCD observations were carried out with the 50/70-cm Schmidt and the 60-cm Cassegrain telescopes administered by Rozhen National Astronomical Observatory in Bulgaria. The observations were performed with four different types of CCD cameras: SBIG ST-8, SBIG STL-11000M and FLI PL16803 on the 50/70-cm Schmidt telescope, and FLI PL09000 on the 60-cm Cassegrain telescope. All frames were taken through a standard Johnson-Cousins set of filters. All obtained frames are dark frame subtracted and flat field corrected. The photometric data were reduced using subroutine DAOPHOT in the IDL software package. All data were analyzed using the same aperture, which was chosen to have a 6-arcsec radius and background annulus from 10-arcsec to 15-arcsec. As a reference sequence we used the BVRI comparisons reported in Semkov (2002IBVS.5214....1S; 2003IBVS.5373....1S). The average value of the errors in the reported magnitudes are 0.01-0.02mag for the I- and R-band data, and 0.02-0.03mag for the V- and B-band data. File Summary:
