Just in time for Halloween, a young man named Jesse McLaren decided to add a hilarious horror theme to his sister’s engagement photos.
A TV and digital media writer, Jesse was asked by his sister to shoot engagement photos for her wedding. And so he did, and they came out quite beautifully.
But as many of us know, siblings like to mess with and play pranks on one another.
So when the engagement photos were shot, and Jesse was putting the final touches on them, he decided to add a new element to each image.
“My sister asked me to shoot her engagement pics, so I hid Pennywise the Clown in every photo.
Countdown until she notices,” he said in his Twitter caption after posting the photos online, where they quickly went viral!
Thankfully, a Photoshop job can be removed as easily as it can be added, but the tens of thousands of viewers found his prank hilarious nonetheless!

This is Jesse McLaren. Jesse has a lot of creative chops, including being good with a camera.
Which is why his sister asked him to shoot her engagement photos.
Jesse decided to take her beautiful photos with her husband-to-be and — through the power of Photoshop — insert a third person.
Of course, this was none other than Pennywise the Dancing Clown!
As many of you know, Pennywise is the iconic horror figure created by Stephen King and immortalized in the 1990 TV miniseries It and the 2017 big-screen remake of the same name.
Jesse channelled both iterations of the evil clown in his sister’s photos, as you can see in the one above!
Pennywise could be see popping out from the ground and from the trees near the happy couple.
Luckily, Jesse kept Pennywise far from his sister and her fiancé in the photos!
Unfortunately for his sister, she had no idea that Jesse had included the evil clown in the images!
But his efforts went viral on Twitter nonetheless.
His tweet showing the Photoshopped images earned over 27,000 retweets and over 89,000 likes, including this retweet calling his work “genius.”
And though it was obviously a prank, commenters acknowledged how beautiful the bride and the photos were even with Pennywise in them!
Another commenter said the Photoshop job inspired her to get married too, but not for the reasons you might expect!
This isn’t the first time some creative Photoshop has been done to engagement photos either!
But of course, the majority of commenters — like the one above — appreciated the humor, even though they acknowledged Jesse’s sister would probably kill him when she finally found out!
Another commenter definitely echoed those sentiments!
Finally, one young woman hoped that her photographer would do something similar and memorable with her engagement photos, too!
