You could try Snapseed - it's a $20 effects software with a free trial you can download. I think it has some similar effects.

I'm pretty sure the background blur is mostly done in post. Snapseed can do something similar. For more control in Photoshop or something similar do a duplicate layer, blur it and do a mask with a soft edge to bring back the subject. You may need to adjust transparency and/or do a curves adjustmeng on your blur layer. Top it off with a vignette, possibly color balance and saturation adjustments.
