Welcome to iMore!

If you use iCloud Photo Library, there is an option called "optimize storage" on your phone where it will manage device space as needed. I'd try that first if you haven't already. If you want them exclusively online, you would want to use a service like Dropbox that has an auto upload feature (you can set it to wifi only). You can even use it in conjunction as an extra backup :)
