Collapsible content

This expanded second edition of ‘The Perfect Imperfect’ includes over thirty new photographs, many made during the pandemic, including new photographs of Gwyneth Paltrow, AnnaSophia Robb and the White House wedding of Naomi Biden.

This book is an unexpected deep dive into the tenderness and complexity of weddings. For over 350 Saturdays, John Dolan has quietly pursued emotional and revealing art inside the wedding day itself. He has aimed his camera at tiny moments of great meaning: evocative, joyful, bittersweet, unscripted, perfectly imperfect scenes at the start of a marriage. The wedding is one of society’s last and lasting ceremonies—universal in its presence, comprehensive in its emotion. Dolan’s candor, his respectful discretion and his gentle but shrewd and powerful observation combine to make a book that transcends weddings and enlightens us on the human condition.

John Dolan has influenced a generation of contemporary wedding photographers, redefining the genre over 30 years of work. He is an artist who chose weddings as his subject, fascinated by the emotional intricacy of this shared ritual. His work has been widely published and celebrated in major magazines and sought after by a variety of thoughtful clients from Martha Stewart to Jerry Seinfeld. Dolan divides his time between New York City, the Berkshires and Ireland.
