As for photographs, etc., the police are under no obligation to prove the offence to you at the time you're charged. Any disputes over damages will be a matter for trial.

If you have been charged DO NOT contact the other driver. You could actually be charged with a criminal offense for doing that.
It will all come out in court and you will be able to challenge the evidence and witnesses then.
Plus for this charge the amount of damage is not relevant. The charge is fail to remain. You hit a car and left. That is what you did and admitted to doing whether is it 100 in damage or 10000 the charge would be the same.
The insurance companies are the one that will care about the cost of the damage.
