[fedora-virt] porting a disk from lvm to file

I have a virtio disk for a vm that consists of an lvm.
I would like to port this vm disk to another virtualization host that has vm
disks on file, instead.
Can I port this lvm vm-disk to file, for example with something like:
dd if=/dev/vgname/lvname of=/directory_tree/filename
and then copy "filename" to the other host and use it as a backing storage
for a vm on it?
Do I have perhaps to consider some heading for lvm metadata and skip
anything form the dd command?
Anyone already done/considered?
