Luiz Felipe was born in Tubarão, Santa Catarina. A Joinville youth graduate, he joined Caxias in 2011, and made his first team debut on 5 October 2012 by starting in a 1–0 Série C away win against Vila Nova.
On 27 January 2016, after appearing in 28 matches, Luis Felipe renewed his contract until the end of 2017. Two days later he scored his first senior goals, netting a brace in a 4–1 Campeonato Paranaense home routing of J. Malucelli.
On 17 February 2016, Santos reached an agreement with Paraná for the transfer of Luiz Felipe, with Peixe paying R$ 1 million for 55% of his federative rights. Two days later, he signed a four-year contract with his new club.
Luiz Felipe made his debut for Peixe on 5 March 2016, coming on as a second-half substitute for injured Lucas Veríssimo in a 2–0 home win against rivals Corinthians. He scored his first goal for the club on 28 April, netting the first in a 3–0 Copa do Brasil success against Santos-AP also at the Vila Belmiro.
Luiz Felipe made his Série A debut on 25 May 2016, replacing Joel in a 2–2 away draw against Figueirense as Gustavo Henrique was sent off. He subsequently established himself as a starter, overtaking David Braz and partnering Gustavo, as his club went on to achieve one of the best defensive records during the first half of the campaign.
On 29 October 2016, Luiz Felipe suffered a knee injury in a 1–0 home win against Palmeiras, being sidelined for seven months. He returned to action on 10 September of the following year, replacing injured Gustavo in a 2–0 home win against rivals Corinthians.
On 10 October 2017, Luiz Felipe extended his contract until 2022. A backup to Braz and Veríssimo, he made his Copa Libertadores debut on 1 May of the following year, playing the full 90 minutes in a 1–0 away loss against Nacional as the latter was suspended.
