Both "to" and "for" are possible.  However, in your particular situation, "for" is better.  "Could you come up with a caption for this photo?"         ["for" indicates the beneficiary (the thing which will get a benefit).  In this case, the photo will get a benefit -- the caption.]


But sometimes "to" would sound better:  "Could you add a caption to this photo?"    "Without my glasses, I can't read the caption to this photo."
