How many appetizers per person?

Calling all caterers:

I am catering my first event, a photography exhibit. (My brother in law's company is hosting, thus the opportunity for me with no previous professional catering experience.) I need assistance on how many appetizers to serve per person. The event is from 7 - 10 pm on a Friday evening, and they are expecting 50 - 75 guests. The information I was able to find through my own research said anywhere from 6 to 12 bites per person per hour. Also, I don't know that people would attend for all three hours, so should I guesstimate one hour per guest? Thank you for your help!
