The lighting is really really nice
It looks like she's squinting though...especially shot #1

I'm also curious what was used? Lighting- AB's? DOF- ND Filter?
I like the unnatural soft light and the DOF combined. Makes a stellar portrait.

Hey guys!
The lighting was simple, it was just two speedlites doubled up behind one 43" Shoot through umbrella and i triggered them with an STE2. If you want you can check out my flickr from the EXIF info!

No ND filters here folks!

Nice. That's the good thing about the ST-E2, the HSS. According to one shot on Flickr, you were using 1/1000 so HSS was used eh? I'm going to check out using two behind an umbrella. I love this look. Thanks for sharing your technique.
The reason I thought "ND Filter" was 1) I've seen it in the past and 2) more recently, David Hobby's post on ND filters and big lights on Strobist.com.

4 and 5. Didn't think that she opened up to the camera very well in the other settings. The expressions felt very forced to me and not natural. I find portraiture very difficult for me personally because of really having to get up close and personal and converse and open up the subject. But, once they are in a natural, relaxed, and comfortable state then magic can really happen.

Hey guys! Just wanted to clear stuff up!
She was suuuper comfortable in front of the camera, I've seen the girl multiple times and she's either got a super grinny face... she thought it was appropriate to have a few not smiling so that was her attempt :)

Thank you so much for the input though, cheers!

Calibrate your monitor

It is calibrated. Like I said, the whites are brighter than they should be, maybe not "blown out" but yes over exposed. You had pretty harsh light though so it was what you had to work with.

Just compare the amount of detail visible in photo #1 to photo #2. Photo #1 has lots of detail but photo #2 has her dress mostly just plain white. A lot of detail was lost.
