SPF, DKIM, DMARC could be dropped if you actually use aws ses to send your mails, you can actually forward the mails there. So it's pretty impossible that your messages will be in spam. The only thing you need to manage is incoming mail now and not being a open relay.

Hence defeating one of the main purposes of running your own mail server in the first place: decentralization.

Unfortunately SES servers seem to be regularly blacklisted. A quick google confirms. I've been using SES for 3-4 months now and had a few hard bounces with specific mention to the IP being banned.

The last spam that got through GMail's filter was from amazonses.com. It wasn't clear how to report it back to Amazon.

actually I never had blacklisting problems on aws ses. My guess would be that the big providers ignoring the blaklists for themself. I mean even Google sometimes gets on a blacklist or Microsoft on still no email happened to be in Spam filter.

And if you still want them, AWS supports enabling these for your outgoing emails.
