I saw a few Lightroom presets that gives effects like that. Don't know the exact names.

Duplicate layer. Desaturate top layer. Reduce opacity around 50%. Add soft glow.

Just Google "Emily Soto". It's much more than just Photoshop or LR. She's an amazing photographer.

Shoot with appropriate clothing and soft light. Extra layer with green and some reduced opacity, desaturate the original and add soft focus.

I think the color is mainly a matter of curves adjustments. Out of the camera, the original probably looked something like the bottom version here:
Analyze the colors using the technique described here:

Looks like it was shot wide open with either a 70-200 or maybe something like an 85mm as only the female is in focus.
The colour grading can be easily done with a few adjustment layers. Particularly the blue channel in curves.

These "How do I recreate this..." threads are often very short. Once Peano has contributed there is no need to comment any further.
Thank you, as always.

instead of being shot wide open, it looks to me more like an artificial blur of the background - artifacts from this seem to be visible in the right side of the background

I'd suggest starting with the real thing. I don't think photoshop techniques can make a model look that bored.

There seems to be an endless supply of "How do you get this look?" threads here on MM. The answer is always curves & color grading. I'm surprised Peano hasn't grown tired of explaining the same thing a million times now.

In most cases I can just paste in the link to that same thread about cross-processing. If I had to go through that explanation every time, I wouldn't!

Emily has tons of BTS videos on youtube. Watch how she shoots. In post, I believe she uses various layers, including gradients to create artificial flare.
I do the same. Sometimes I'll use a blank layer and paint in very low opacity (5-10%), using a complimenting color to bring down the contrast. Looks like she sells PS actions as well. You can always purchase and reverse engineer it.

You can get this look directly from your camera. Proper lens choice is key.

i dont know if it is 100% possible in camera i undestand near feel but not the same
after alot of research i ended up in two things.
Watch this video and learn.
better then preaching thank you. ( i guess that is why this forum is, and when you ask the teacher how it is done, he doesnt answer you well i explained this many times last year so go check with your old class mates WHAT EVER).
2-you can purchase from emily herself the ps actions

No you can't... There's a vignette added, at least 2 color layers with masks plus an added circular gradient in the upper left to add some flare...

Yet another approach ....
Select the back ground (and, duh, inverse to get the people). Back ground to a second layer and play as you will with any/all of the techniques suggested.
Also, if you haven't tried it; stay in RGB, take the background (in this case) to its own layer and apply one of the Filters (try Pencil, for example). Then reduce opacity (that's the bottom of the two you can fade) to where it looks 'right'. Absolutely not what you asked, but it's fun.
You can then drive yourself completely insane by creating multiple layers of background(s) and applying a single filter to each. Reduce opacity to each as you wish. Hope that helps.

The funny part of this thread is you can buy the exact photoshop action she used on that picture from her website. It will tell you exactly what she did for $10.
I brought a few.
Every picture of mine i put them on they look terrible but it was a good way to learn her workflow.
