Recover files deleted by Command + Z

I copied photos from my sd card to my mac. I deleted the files from my sd card and removed them to take more photos. Then I accidentally pressed the command-z and the whole folder disappeared. I didn't even get any notification telling me "cannot find restore location" or " files will be deleted". Folder just disappeared right away and is not in the trash. Where did they go? Are they in some sort of temporary storage?
