What is the best service for a group of people to share photos of the same event?

I upload my wife's photos to my flickr account and we find it really neat to see different perspectives of the same events. I went to a friend's wedding over the weekend and of course everyone was taking pictures with their cameras and phones, some of which started showing up on Facebook over the week, but all quite piecemeal. What would be the best way to create a "shared" account or gallery so that all attendees could easily upload photos?
Some features that would be good:
Ability to control the privacy of some/all of the photos (ie viewable to everyone, all members of the group, people in the photo, the person taking the photo, etc)
Facial recognition so that you could tag people and then it would auto suggest them in the other photos (flickr seems to only be able to tag others with flickr accounts). I think facebook does this.
Easy to set up for the users. Something like being able to take a photo of a 3d bar code and automatically log in with your smartphone or being able to log in with an existing account such as google, facebook or twitter.
Ability to get copies of the photos in high/original resolution/format. If someone uploads RAW files from their camera others would be able to download those. This could be controlled by permissions to limit access if people want to keep control of their RAW files.
Can hook up to your apple photostream or google+ instant uploads so that pictures can be uploaded as they are taken.
While I figure that any photo sharing site would be able to get the job done more or less, in your experience which one does it the best?
