This should outline what you need to do

You would have to add an additional view controller into your storyboard for after the user takes the photo. Instead of presenting the image picker modally from the view controller where you choose recipients you would present it in this new controller. That view would have an image view that fills the screen (which displays the image the user just captured) and a text field with a clear back ground. The user types their text in then hits a next button that presents the view that let's them select recipients. Once ready to save to parse, you would have to save an additional field, the text of the text field where the caption was typed. Then when displaying the message you just have to add a text label to the view that displays the image and populate it with the message's caption that got saved earlier
