Do I charge per photo or per hour or both?

I'm just starting out my little side business and at first, I thought that I should charge per photo.
But then I figured, I don't want to sit at an event for 6 hours just so I can send 25 photos to the customer.

If I charge per hour, that could end up being a lot of photos. I tend to take way too many photos during an event. About 200 per hour.
So that means I need to go through hundreds of photos to pick the best ones.

Perhaps I should just charge something like $50/h and on top of that $5 per photo. I haven't decided on the cost yet so that's just an example.

Or maybe not charge per hour, but decide something like "1 hour, 25 photos for $xxx", "2 hours, 50 photos" (and charge for that a bit less than double the previous price) and so on.

How would you advise me?
