In my mom's, dad's and brothers iPhone, it tags the location of the picture so you can see it later in the Photos app. However mine doesn't do that, my iPhone only shows the date that the picture was taken - even when I turn location services on for the camera app.

Does anyone know of any solution?

Have you taken a new photo or are you referring to old photos since turning location services on

I'm referring to new photos after turning location. Perhaps location services need 4g or internet for it to work? I don't have that right now because I'm abroad.

Without the internet, the Assisted-GPS unit in your iPhone may take a while to start up (it has to find the satelites on its own). In which case you just need to be patient.

Or your iPhone's GPS unit may be dead. You could test it with a GPS-only app such as Handy GPS.
