    I am wanting to know how to get images like these.
    The colors are beautiful and the images are very crisp.

    Don't forget to white balance! Shooting a gray card with set color values can help you adjust specific colors in the image as well.

    ...and learn some post processing because you aren't going to have perfect lighting and perfect exposure, and perfect white balance every shot nor are these RAW files coming out looking like they do on this website. I would recommend learning to use photoshop and LAB mode for boosting color and using the lightness channel for sharpening. Search google and Youtube.

    Most likely a very fast portrait prime lens (f1.2/f1.4), 2 or 3 studio lights and good post processing skills.

    To add to the comments, I would also say that attention to composition and colour have been made in every shot.
