Has it ever worked? Are you sending the photo via text messaging or Imessaging?
Does the person also use iPhone?
It works only when I’m on wifi, it doesn’t seem to work when I send via picture messaging and yes the other person has iMessage. I just upgraded to a 7, but I feel like I had this problem back when I had the SE. Safari isn’t working now either

If it works on wifi, then it is imessage so you need regular data. It is not texting like SMS or MMS.
Go to your settings and try resetting your network settings. Note that your bluetooth and wifi passwords will be lost

You also need to make sure you have allowed the Messages App to use cellular data in your cellular settings menu.
