She most likely has actions set up to achieve that effect.

The images are probably already shot with a good dept of field to achieve that dreamy feel, the action is just an enhancement.

I've worked as a retoucher for a photographer with a similar style, and her images were very close to that straight from the camera, so unfortunately I will have to say you have to begin with amazing photos and the rest should only be an enhancement.

Try deviant art for action presets for photoshop, but keep in mind that all actions should be adjusted accordingly to each photo.

Although tbh it shouldn't have to be anything more than taking a good photo, cleaning up the blemishes and playing around with curves.

Um.. well I just thought it was basic...

You paint with low opacity on a new layer in normal blending mode to get the haze.

Place subjects in forest or in the middle of a city street, shoot with a shallow depth of field (f/4-f/1.2), done.
