    I don't see anything there that a modern cell phone and a Instagram filter couldn't accomplish.

    Any of that is easy with Photoshop and probably with Lightroom as well. There are some free ones, like Gimp, that could o it also.

    It's called processing and its done relatively easy. There are plenty of free tutorials to for this type of "vintage" processing available on YouTube.

    Welcome! So many question, so many answer.

    First; are the posted images your ideal end result? More information, please.

    You say "vintage", but since I'm "vintage" myself, I'm not sure what you mean. Please elucidate.

    "Slightly blurred" can be accomplished fairly easily by using a filter screwed onto the front of your lens, or adding blur in post, or waiting for a hazy day.

    Speaking of waiting; "warm lighting" is usually accomplished by using the sun, preferably at or just before sundown when clouds will reflect warm yellow light all over everything.
