Understand but this is one of many many threads (not just the last 3) by OP with DJ type pics. I'm simply pointing out that he has a tendency to compose his shots in not the most atheistically pleasing way. It's now a trend and breaking it might be good if he's to move forward.

Actually, I would say for 3 of the pics, you didn't crop enough. The third pic I like as is, no issue with missing feet.

First pic: From the bottom, I would crop maybe at or just above the groom's knees, but not touch the dress. On the left, I would crop to near the edge of her feet/dress. On the right, I would crop near to the blue-shirt guy's elbow. I think the diagonally-dominant, anti-symmetry(?), near in-focus, far out-of-focus would give the pic added dynamism to enhance what's happening in the moment.

Second pic: I would try a crop similar to the first pic.

Fourth pic: A square-ish crop. Again, left and bottom crops near to the groom's elbow and jacket. But I think, critically, on the right, crop to include only the three ladies looking and exclude the couple leaning in towards each other.

Screw the feet.
