Yes you need to have data enabled to send or receive picture messages. Anything other than pictures that uses data will incure charges for that data used yes.

Also iMessage requires data so even text messages sent via iMessage will charge you for data.

iMessage can run on wifi but picture messages requires data to be enable and will not run on wifi
