As Clayface mentioned, the words look different sizes because the kerning is different.
While dropping the second word might be convenient and simpler, the client may have already registered the name or website. Call and ask about flexibility: this is a good time to communicate and include them in your design process.
How about some friendly critique? The shapes and color of your design seem overpowering. Is it just me or does this logo scream "Searching for Adult Photos of Pancakes." They might specialize in adult or food photography, or sports, fashion, retail, weddings, family lifestyle or corporate services. Maybe they only rent studio space and equipment for photo shoots. Find out what their specialty is. As you offer your client ideas, remember they always pick the design you like the least.
Next, focus on the word Zoom and visualize a camera. Then click my current project posted. Rip it off the wall and step on it.
