But it turns out everything is not what it seems.

Despite looking like she’s floating in mid-air with Luiz barely exerting any effort to hold her up, the 21-year-old student’s mid-air adventures are actually a lot safer than what they appear.

The couple are the latest travellers to snap themselves at notorious Brazilian hot spot the Pedra del Telegrafo.

While it appears that a rock juts out over a dangerous 350 metre drop, there’s actually another plateau beneath it protecting photo-takers from taking the plunge should they fall.

"My fiancé thinks a lot like me and loves adventure and adrenaline. She really wanted to try it,” explains Luiz.

"I've done it before, but you need to practice a lot to make it work.

“You achieve the picture through a specific camera angle that creates an optical illusion.

"When you position the camera at the correct angle the rock looks like an abyss."
